This practice is part of the local Primary Care Research Network , Central England (PCRN CE). The Network is funded by the Department of Health to undertake research to improve healthcare.

What does this mean for you?

You may be invited to take part in a research study. Whether or not you take part is entirely up to you, and the decision you take will not affect any of your medical care.

Your medical records and how they are used

We may be asked to share information we hold in medical records as part of the research.

We always do this in a way that protects your privacy and gives you the option to opt out of research.

There are strict measures in place at the practice and with the researchers to keep your records confidential. The way in which we do this is set out in the leaflet “Use of your medical records”, please ask for a copy.

If you have any questions we would be happy to answer them.
