View CQC Report October 2014
Welcome to Wetmore Road Surgery. We hope you find this site informative and easy to use.
The Doctors and staff at Wetmore Road Surgery are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centered health care.
We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes. We also offer a wide variety of other medical services, including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups, amongst others.
Our aim is to provide a range of services to help you understand your health needs and ongoing care.
With this in mind the practice Newsletter is produced 3 times a year and provides information about people working at the surgery, together with current health news. Recent editions can be found through the link on the right of this page.
The practice is proud to have been accepted as a member of the Primary Care Research Network. This is primarily funded to host the recruitment of patients from primary care into high quality studies and trials. For further information click here
Wetmore Road Surgery is a "training practice" for trainee GP's. All GP trainees consult under the direct supervision of a GP Partner. We hope that you will allow trainee GP's to be involved with your care during the duration of their placement. For more information click here
We welcome your feedback and if there is any additional information you feel would be useful, please do not hesitate to let us know.

We are currently trialing a change to our appointment system to allow us to offer more appointments that can be booked on the day. Please bear with us while we undertake this trial, as we are working for the benefit of our patients.
Care Data Service
Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone. This information along with your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, is sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information. Once your GP records have been linked with other health information, your personal details are then deleted so the information held cannot be traced back to you. 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.
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 have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet “How information about you helps us to provide better care”. This leaflet is also available below:
More information can also be found here www.nhs.uk/caredata or you can pick up a leaflet in the Surgery reception.
If you do wish to opt out, please either telephone the practice and speak to one of our practice administrators or collect an opt out form from the reception desk or print one here. There is also a list of FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) which you can print out here.
The Patient Participation Group have a number of vacancies, if you are interested in becoming directly involved with the group, please contact the PPG secretary directly.
