Patient Demographics

We are currently auditing our patient records, including the demographic information held such as contact details, ethnicity, and other data.
If we have any data missing from your record, you will receive communication either via text, email, or a phone call from the surgery asking you to reply to the text with the requested information.
Whilst it is not mandatory to give us this information, it help us and the wider NHS provide the best possible care to you. It is widely recognised that some ethnicities are at higher risk of developing, and experiencing complications from, a variety of conditions. Having an accurate record of each of our patients ethnicities means we can provide more targeted monitoring for those patients at risk.
