Eagle Bridge Community Cafe

The opening times for the cafe are:                                08:30 until 14:30 Monday to Friday

The Cafe is run by 'The Wishing Well Project.' This is a Charity run to help people have a healthier lifestyle and to teach young and old people about how important it is to keep fit and healthy. They have provided many different opportunities for people such as youth clubs, before and after school clubs, meal delivery services for the elderly, relationship building courses, and offer many different classes such as art, knitting photography etc for people to learn and enjoy. The best part about the wishing well project is that it is all run by volunteers. For more information about the Wishing well project please ask at Eagle Bridge Cafe or click the link below.

Your health records!

We would like to make sure that all our patients know that the information we have for each patient is very personal and confidential and is not shared without your consent.There are some systems of data extraction which you should be aware off and we would like you to give consent or otherwise completing the forms provided at reception.

We keep certain records such as the following:

1) basic details (name, date of birth, address, contact details etc)

2)Consultations from all your appointments and results

3) Your medical records (health, treatment, care etc)

4) Relevant information from other health-care professions(hospital, opticians, etc)

We use your information to guide the administrator with your health, or to try and improve our surgery. We do pass information to relevant sources with your consent.

Benefits of sharing your information:

Healthcare professions will find more effective ways of managing illnesses, guide decisions about how to manage NHS resources fairly so they can support the treatment to the best of their ability, which will help the patients. 

Local data sharing:

Relevant basic information is shared between us and local community services and hospitals, your information won’t go anywhere without your permission as this is very important and we ask each time information is requested. We have opted into this system for the benefit of the patients, and this helps because this ensures that all clinical information is up to date and accurate.

 Summary Care Record:

This will start in May 2014, this will be an electronic summery which will include the basic information; this will be accessed by all NHS staff.  The reason this has been designed is for emergency situations as information may be needed; we still ask for your permission unless you are unconscious.

 Opting out:

If you don’t opt out information may be shared, but if you later want to opt out we cannot retrieve the information already been sent. If you opt out now, you can opt back in when you feel like it.

Reception Staff:

We are not able to object sharing your information with the relevant people/hospitals unless you have said no. You may not be able to prevent your information from hospitals being uploaded but you are able to chose what happens with it afterwards.
