Response to article in May edition of Stanton Steamer regarding pharmacy application

Stanton Surgery Pharmacy Application - The Facts

Stanton Surgery’s Pharmacy Application – the Facts

The practice would like to correct some inaccurate statements made in this month’s Stanton Steamer by stating the following facts:

• The practice has made an application to open a pharmacy

• The purpose of making this application is to protect the dispensing service at Stanton Surgery from compulsorily having to cease if a corporate pharmacy chain or independent pharmacy makes a successful application to open in the village

• If the application is successful, patients of Ixworth, Botesdale and Woolpit surgeries who live in Stanton will still be able to obtain their medication from their own practice

• This is because all three of the other surgeries have already made successful applications to run their own pharmacies from their own premises

• If the application is successful, patients will not notice any change in the way their medication is dispensed from the surgery

• If the application is unsuccessful, dispensing services at Stanton Surgery will be protected from corporate or independent pharmacies opening for the next five years

Your Information

Blue_Locked_FolderWe ask for information about you so that you can receive the best possible care and treatment. We keep this information, together with details of your care, to ensure that your doctor or nurse has accurate and up to date information. It also may be needed if we see you again.

There are times when we have to pass on information about you to other people such as hospitals, Social Services or the Health Authority. This is always done confidentially or by removing your identifying details when they are not essential.

Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to maintain the highest level of confidentiality about patient information.

As part of this Practice's contribution to the study of clinical care, we provide important anonymised information on diseases and treatments for research by third parties including academic, patient and commercial organisations. No identifiable information such as your name and address is provided. These data are combined with similar data from many other practices to give more than one million anonymised records. Such information contributes to our understanding of health and health care.

The Practice is registered under the Data Protection Act, Registration Number A073419X.

Everyone should be able to see the information that is kept in their medical records. If you wish to see your own medical records you should submit a request in writing to the Practice Manager. We will only give your relatives, friends and carers information if you want us to.
