Covid19 – sharing your records

COVID-19 contingency sharing.

Primary care staff across each borough will be able to access your full medical record without consent during the COVID-19 pandemic but will only do so when this is necessary to provide you with care. They will be required to use a smartcard which confirms their identity, and which limits their access and actions to those appropriate for their role. They will all have been trained to understand their professional and legal responsibilities in providing you with care”.

URGENT NOTICE TO PATIENTS

 Please be advised that we are experiencing high levels of staff sickness and facing high volumes of calls for medical care from sick patients.

 If you have booked an appointment you no longer need please cancel on line or call 02079356328 so your appointment can be offered to someone else.

We are not able to provide any non-NHS work until the volume of calls and staffing levels resume to normal. Non NHS work includes for example fitness to fly/travel/participate, letters of support for housing/benefits/freedom passes

Much of this work we do not provide at any time however patients continue to ask us to do so

 Our priority and focus is to provide clinical care for our patients

Thank you. Marylebone Health Centre

If you have any questions please speak to a member of our reception team, or to Jeanette, the Practice Manager

BREXIT – Getting your Medicines

Notice to patients related to BREXIT:

Some patients have told us that they are concerned that BREXIT may result in some medication not being available.
Up to now we have not be alerted to any concerns relating to medication shortages caused by BREXIT and we will therefore not be issuing additional supplies of medication nor will we be providing medication earlier than it is currently due.
Thank you
Jeanette Creaser
Practice Manager
