GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR)
You may well have seen or recently received documentation from other sources such as Banks etc referring to the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into effect on 25th May. This is one of the biggest changes to UK data privacy law. The GDPR is Europe’s new framework for data protection laws. It replaces the previous 1995 Data Protection Directive which current UK law is based upon.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new law that determines how your personal data is processed and kept safe, and the legal rights that you have in relation to your own data.
The GDPR is a positive step towards you having more control over how your data is used and how you’re contacted. The new Regulation supports your right to have your privacy respected and your data protected. It is designed to give you confidence that the personal information we hold about you is accurate, up to date and well managed and to give you easier access to that information if you wish to check or change it.
However, please be rest assured that we strictly maintain our legal duty of confidentiality to you at all times. We will only ever use or pass on information about you if others involved in your direct care have a genuine need for it. We will not disclose your information to third parties without your permission unless there are exceptional circumstances, such as when the health or safety of others is at risk or where the law requires information to be passed on.
Much work has to be done to become compliant with GDPR so this is currently a ‘work in progress’.
We shall shortly be publishing our Fair Processing and Privacy Notice which you will be able to find on this website.
In the meantime, here is an information leaflet that can be downloaded which will also be available at our Stockbridge and Broughton Surgeries.

EVENING AND WEEKEND APPOINTMENTS
AT GP ACCESS HUBS
Mid-Hampshire Healthcare, a GP Federation delivering multiple clinical services across the mid-Hampshire location, has implemented two new GP Access Hubs to give patients additional access to Primary Care Services on evenings and at weekends.
The GP Access Hubs will be located in Andover and Winchester and look to provide Pre-Bookable and Same Day appointments:
- 5pm to 8pm Monday to Friday
- 8am to 4pm Saturday (to 12pm Andover)
- 8am to 12pm Sunday
- Andover War Memorial Hospital, Andover, SP10 3LB (next door to MIU) (opened 2nd October 2017)
- Badger Farm Surgery, Winchester, SO22 4QB (next door to Sainsburys) (opened 5th October 2017)
You will be able to book these appointments either through our Reception Team, 111 or Out of Hours. It is GP-led supported by Nurse Practitioners and Healthcare Assistants. Routine appointments can be booked 2 weeks in advance. However, you can only be seen in a hub appointment if you agree to share your full electronic medical record with the Clinician. You will be asked for consent to share your record at the time of booking.
Any patient registered with Stockbridge Practice can book into the hub through our Reception Team.
