Patients who have not consented to share their medical records and the new General Data Protection Regulations

We now offer access to GP’s and nurses  at weekends and between 6.30 pm and 8.00pm – these appointments take place at 3 hub practices  based in Ealing Broadway, Greenford and Southall.

Due to the new General Data Protection Regulations GP’s and nurses at these hubs will not be able to view your medical records if you are booked for an appointment with them. Previously they were able to ask your consent and override your record sharing preference – this functionality has now been deleted and no information can be viewed by any other professional or organisation if your consent has not been given to share your medical records.

If you wish to change your records sharing consent please contact the surgery or you can email us at admin.pitshanger@nhs.net
