Little Waltham and Great Notley Surgeries
HAVE YOU ATTENDED A&E RECENTLY?
We are working with the Accident & Emergency Department at Broomfield Hosital to help reduce inappropriate attendance. Each attendance at A&E attendance costs a minimum of £54 and considerably more if tests are carried out. There are various services that patients may use instead of A&E and we would welcome your help in identifying the reasons our patients attend A&E. We would be grateful if you could spare the time to complete the following short survey which will enable us to see if there are changes that we could make to reduce the burden on A&E services.

Care Data Service
Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so the NHS can provide the best possible care for everyone. This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information. This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you. Extraction of this data will commence in November.
You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you do not wish your information to be shared in this way please complete a form at reception or send a brief note informing us that you wish to opt out of the Care Data Service.
