IMPORTANT CHANGES TO HOW WE
HANDLE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We will soon be required to supply your personal and confidential medical information to the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). This information will be taken from the practice in a form that can identify you. The practice has NO choice but to allow the HSCIC to extract this information. However, individual patients can instruct their practice to stop the transfer of their data. For more information on the reasons for this data extract and how to opt out of sending your confidential information ask the receptionist for a leaflet or go to the website at www.nhs.uk/caredata
The implementation of the Summary Care Record, by our Practice, was due by September 30th, but has unfortunately been delayed due to circumstances beyond our control. This should be available by the end of the year and we will keep you updated as soon as it is available and live on our system.
For more information about the SCR, please see the bottom of our Registration page HERE.
Note - If you want to set up more than one account (eg for other family members) we advise against using the same email address for each account. If you use the same email address for multiple accounts, appointment booking and prescription ordering confirmation emails for all accounts will be viewable by all who have access to that email address.
The practice caters mainly for the students at the University of Sussex, and we strive to tailor our services to match the needs of our practice population.
There has been a health service operating from the University of Sussex campus since the 1960’s. Over years this service has evolved and developed and we pride ourselves on offering specialist primary health care services targeted at the student population of Brighton and Hove. The practice building is purpose built and facilitates disabled access.
We are now offering registered patients access to book Appointments and also order Repeat Prescriptions online - either on their computer or Smartphone.
You need to register for this service - just pop in to the surgery with some Photo-ID.
