Requests for a letter from the doctor must be submitted using a letter request form. These are available at the front desk or by clicking the following link: Letter Request Form (DOCX, 24KB)
The practice endeavours to have all letters and forms completed within five working days, however, this is sometimes not possible. Most letters and forms are private work not provided on the NHS. All other clinical and NHS work takes priority. These letters are done outside of a GP’s normal working day.
There is a fee for most letters and forms.
Please note, that due to the guidelines for British passports, a GP at the practice is unable to sign this form. If you require an Irish passport signed, you must book in for an appointment.
A completed letter request form can be emailed to us at: email@example.com
If you submit a letter request form, please contact the surgery to check on it's progress.
Medical Reports & Subject Access Requests
Our practice has decided to outsource our medical reporting work to a processor, iGPR Technologies Limited (“iGPR”) 01527 570 005.
iGPR will be processing your medical report requests, such as Subject Access Requests (SARs) that you submit to us (or that someone acting on your behalf submits to us e.g. Solicitors) and report requests that insurers submit to us under the Access to Medical Records Act 1988.
iGPR is fully compliant with both current data protection legislation and industry and NHS best practice for the management of patient data and keeping it protected. This ensures the practice of good data security and that personal information is handled correctly.
iGPR helps General Practice with data security, speed and efficiency of producing medical reports. They support surgeries with compliance with the data protection legislation by ensuring that patient data that is to be shared through third parties requests such as solicitors and insurers, is effectively protected and encrypted in transit.
