We are proposing to sign up to a new system which will allow health and social care professionals from outside the GP practice directly involved in your care to view the most up-to-date information about you . This allows the professionals caring for you to more fully understand your needs and means you only have to tell your history once.
You will be asked for your consent whenever a professional outside the GP practice wishes to view your record. If you do not wish your information to be shared in this way please let us know. For further information please see these Frequently Asked Questions or read our Privacy Notice which gives full details of how we use and share your information.
The Accessible Information Standard is a new law (2016) to make sure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss are given information they can easily read or understand.
Individuals most likely to be affected by the Standard include people who are blind or deaf, who have some hearing and/or visual loss, and people with a learning disability. However, this list is not exhaustive.
If you feel that this applies to you or someone in your care, please inform a member of staff, we will then do our best to meet these needs. You need to help us to make sure we get things right for you.
You can find more information about the Accessible Information Standard on the NHS England website: www.england.nhs.uk/accessibleinfo

All patients will have a named accountable GP who will be responsible for the patients’ overall care at the practice. This does not stop you from seeing any other GP in the practice.
Where a patient wishes to see a particular GP, they may have to wait longer to see their preferred practitioner.
If you wish to know who your named accountable GP is, please contact the practice on 01226 355800. If you have a preference to a particular GP the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice and should not be used for any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices.
The average earnings for GPs working in Hoyland Medical Practice in the last
financial year ending in 2021/22 was £117,357 before taxation and National
This is for 2 full time GPs, 5 part time GPs and 2 locum GPs who worked in
the practice for more than 6 months.
