Patient Online Services - April 2016

Dyneley House Surgery has offered patients’ facilities to book appointments and order their repeat prescriptions ‘on-line’ since 2011.

From 1 April, we are able to offer patients the facility to view information from their medical record. 

Please ask at Reception about the process of registering to be able to access this facility.

NHS Friends & Family Test

We welcome your feedback and would be really pleased if you can spare a few minutes to complete the new NHS Friends & Family Test. You can find the survey in the 'Have your say' section on the homepage of the website.

Named Accountable GP

From the 1 April 2015, under the terms and conditions of the General Medical Services Contract, the Practice is required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all registered patients.


If you wish to know who your allocated GP is, or have a preference as to which GP you are allocated, please contact Reception.


These new arrangements do not prevent you making an appointment or seeing any GP at the Practice as patients have always been able to.


GP Earnings

From April 2016, all doctors’ practices are required to declare the mean earnings (average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients. 

The average pay for GPs working in Dyneley House Surgery in the last financial year was £67,250 before tax and National Insurance.  This is for 2 full time GPs, 8 part time GPs and 0 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.”

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the Practice are publicised and the required disclosure is shown above. 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 to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.

Accessible Information Standard - Making Health & Social Care Information Accessible

The Accessible Information Standard will come into force from 31 July 2016 across health and social care in England. Our aim is to make sure disabled people have access to information that they can understand and any communication support they might need.

You can find out more by reading this guide in easy words and pictures. You can also watch a video in British Sign Language (BSL) or listen to an audio recording.

We are currently working towards the standard.  The first thing we need to do is identify those people with information and communication needs. Please help us to do this.

Let us know if you have a disability, impairment or sensory loss, and the kind of information and communication support that you need.

We will record this on your medical records.  This will help us to be prepared the next time you use our services. Please ask a member of the Practice Team if you need any further information or assistance.

How We Use Your Personal Information

This Privacy Notice explains why GP practices collect information about you and how that information may be used.


Health care professionals who provide you with care maintain records about your health and any treatment or care you have received previously (e.g. NHS Trust, GP Surgery, Walk-in clinic, etc.). These records are used to help to provide you with the best possible healthcare.


NHS health care records may be electronic, on paper or a mixture of both, and we use a combination of working practices and technology to ensure that your information is kept confidential and secure. Records this GP Practice hold about you may include the following information;


  • Details about you, such as your name, address, carers, legal representatives and  emergency contact details
  • Any contact the surgery has had with you, such as appointments, clinic visits, emergency appointments, etc.
  • Notes and reports about your health
  • Details about your treatment and care
  • Results of investigations such as laboratory tests, x-rays, etc.
  • Relevant information from other health professionals, relatives or those who care for you


To ensure you receive the best possible care, your records are used to facilitate the care you receive. Information held about you may be used to help protect the health of the public and to help us manage the NHS. Information may be used within the GP practice for clinical audit to monitor the quality of the service provided.

Some of this information will be held centrally and used for statistical purposes. Where we do this, we take strict measures to ensure that individual patients cannot be identified.

Sometimes your information may be requested to be used for research purposes – the Surgery will always gain your consent before releasing the information for this purpose.


Risk Stratification


Risk stratification data tools are increasingly being used in the NHS to help determine a person’s risk of suffering a particular condition, preventing an unplanned or (re)admission and identifying a need for preventive intervention.


Information about you is collected from a number of sources including NHS Trusts and from this GP Practice. A risk score is then arrived at through an analysis of your de-identified information using software managed by EMBED Health Consortium and is only provided back to your GP as data controller in an identifiable form.


Risk stratification enables your GP to focus on preventing ill health and not just the treatment of sickness. If necessary your GP may be able to offer you additional services.

Please note that you have the right to opt out of your data being used in this way.


Medicines Management


The Practice may conduct Medicines Management Reviews of medications prescribed to its patients. This service performs a review of prescribed medications to ensure patients receive the most appropriate, up to date and cost effective treatments. This service is provided to practices within North Yorkshire through Harrogate and Rural District Clinical Commissioning Group.

We will not disclose your information to any third party without your permission unless there are exceptional circumstances (i.e. life or death situations), where the law requires information to be passed on and / or in accordance with the new information sharing principle following Dame Fiona Caldicott’s information sharing review (Information to share or not to share) where “The duty to share information can be as important as the duty to protect patient confidentiality.” This means that health and social care professionals should have the confidence to share information in the best interests of their patients within the framework set out by the Caldicott principles.
