How we use your Health Records

We mainly use your health records within the practice to ensure that clinical staff are able to make the best decisions possible for your health care. In addition, our administrative staff such as medical secretaries and receptionists may need access to your records for things like ongoing referral to specialist treatment, and to provide you with test results. We also may provide information to health care professionals outside the practice such as district nurses, health visitors, and specialists to whom you may have been referred.

If we receive requests from other agencies such as solicitors, insurance companies etc, information will only be provided with your consent.

Please see our leaflet “How We Use Your Health Records” for further information.

We are aware of letters being sent out by NHS England with an invite to have your COVID vaccination at Blackburn Cathedral.
If you do not wish to take up this offer for any reason, please wait for our phone call to invite you to book an appointment here at the health centre.
At the moment we have no timescale, but please be aware we will contact you with an appointment as soon as we possibly can.
Please could we remind all patients not to contact the surgery regarding the COVID vaccination.
We are in the process of contacting patients in the following order of group priority:
  • all those 80 years of age and over
  • all those 75 years of age and over
  • all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
  • all those 65 years of age and over
  • all individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality
  • all those 60 years of age and over
  • all those 55 years of age and over
  • all those 50 years of age and over
This is a staggered process, so please can we ask again that you wait to be contacted.
Thank you for your co-operation.
