The doctors and staff at Kirklands surgery in Portsmouth are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
Situation and Car Parking
We regret that there is insufficient space to be able to offer patients car parking facilities on the premises. However, there is ample space in the driveway for private cars or taxis to `drop off’ and `pick up’ patients who have difficulty walking. The best car parking possibilities are in Powerscourt Road.
NAMED ACCOUNTABLE GP FOR ALL PATIENTS
All Kirklands patients now have a named accountable GP. The named accountable GP is responsible for the patients' overall care at the practice. If you would like to know who that GP is please contact the surgery. If you have a preference as to which GP that is, the practice will make every effort to accommodate this request. It will not always be possible for you to see the allocated GP; when booking a routine appointment patients are also free to book the GP of their choice. When requesting a same day emergency appointment it may not always be possible to book the doctor of your choice.
Information Sharing – Kirkland Surgery
To ensure you receive the right care we may share information about you and your care with other health professionals. We will only use or pass on identifiable information about you with other health professionals who are involved in the direct provision of your care. They will ask your permission to see your information when they first see you. We will not disclose your identifiable information to anyone else without your permission unless in exceptional circumstances (i.e. life or death situations), or where the law requires it.
The NHS currently uses your information in an anonymous and safe way to:
1. Protect the health of the public
2. Help us anticipate, plan and provide care
3. Audit and monitor the quality of services provided
By registering with this practice you are consenting to your information being shared.
However, you can ask for your information not to be shared outside of the practice. Please complete the information sharing opt-out form if you do not wish your information to be shared. If you decide to opt out it will not affect your entitlement to care. However, it may result in the delivery of your care being less efficient as clinicians will not see your full medical history. If you have any concerns about how your information is shared or held, please contact the Practice Manager.
