This privacy notice applies to personal information processed by or on behalf of the practice.
We are providing data to NHS Digital as part of the General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection, so that patient data can be used to help improve everyone's health and care.

Child Health Information Departments are NHS services responsible for keeping some basic information about children’s health such as vaccinations they have been given. This is to help health professionals like GPs make sure children get their vaccinations on time.
A single Child Health Information System (CHIS) is now in operation for the whole of the West Midlands.
Your Doctor, Nurses and Health Centre staff provide a completely confidential service to everyone, including teenagers and the under 16s. This means we will not tell anyone about your visit. The only rare exception is if you are at risk of very serious harm. We will always try to inform you first.
A completely confidential contraception and sexual health service is provided by the Practice.
Our fair processing notice explains why the GP practice collects information about you and how that information may be used.
