The following document gives you information about our intention in line with Infection Control and Prevention guidelines.

The Data Protection Act (1998), is currently being repealed by Parliament, and the new Data Protection Act (2018) will replace this.
This will be the greatest change to the legislation in over 30 years.
In addition to this, from 25th May 2018, a new law will also come into force called GDPR.
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It will apply to all world wide countries that offer services to EU residents, including the UK. Like the Data Protection Act, the GDPR ensures that personal data is processed fairly and lawfully.
For further information please see our Patient Information Leaflet.
In line with GDPR the Practice has produced a new Privacy Notice which outlines fair processing of data. This is also available in a child friendly version.
The privacy notice for patients accessing GP Care Wakefield can be found here.
In order to be provided with Primary Medical Services patients are expected to act in a manner that does not represent a threat to GPs, including their Practice staff, other patients and property. This guide sets out the type of conduct that is expected of all patients registered with a General Practice. Patients are expected to behave in the following manner:
If patients fail to comply with the above conditions, despite attempts by the surgery to engage with them and, if after a final warning about their behaviour they continue to not comply, the surgery may deem this to be an irrevocable break down in GP / patient relations and may request that they are removed from the surgery patient list.
In return, patients can expect to access a range of services provided with respect and confidentiality including:
If patients commit any act of violence including threatening, abusive or intimidating behaviour towards a GP, Practice staff, other patients (including damaging their property) they will be removed from the practice list and may be re-assigned to the Special Allocation Scheme for violent and aggressive patients.
This Practice is one of over 260 Practices in England contributing pseudonymised data for national research and surveillance.
This data enables continuous monitoring of infections and diseases in the community and is used in ethically approved research. The RCGP RSC is the main source of information for Public Health England and helps with prediction and management of flu outbreaks and pandemics.
Providing pseudonymised data does not affect patients, their care or privacy, however if you do not wish to allow your information to be used in this way, please let us know.
More information can be found in this patient information leaflet.
The Accessible Information Standard (AIS) is a new national standard that all organisations providing NHS or adult social care are required to implement.
The AIS ensures that patients, carers and parents of patients, and visitors who have a disability or sensory loss receive information they can access and understand.
We strive to ensure that information is given in the appropriate format and all patient information is produced according to the accessible standards set by the UK Association for Accessible Formats. This includes:
If you have a specific communication need, please let a member of staff know.
