Welcome to MGS Medical Practice, we are part of Our Health Partnership (OHP) A healthy future for patients and practices.
Our aim is to provide an effective and excellent service to all service users, who are registered to our practices. Our premises are suitable for both able bodied and non-able bodied service users; we have ramps leading into the buildings to aid access for all.
We also have parking spaces outside the building which are reserved for patients displaying a disabled sticker.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Data Protection Officer -Our Health Partnership (Umar Sabat Governance Team)
MGS practice has signed agreement for :
NHS shared care record (ShCR) is a way of bringing together all your separate records from the different organisations involved in your health and care.
It will let the professionals who are directly involved with your care see relevant information about the care and treatment you’ve had across all services, in all parts of the Black Country and West Birmingham.
This means you only have to tell your story once, and our local health and care professionals have instant access to all the information they need to treat you in the fastest, safest and most effective way.
If you have an urgent but not life-threatening medical need, make sure you visit NHS 111 online first rather than going straight to A&E. NHS 111 online will help you right away and, if needed, a healthcare professional will call you.
NHS 111 online can direct you to an urgent treatment centre/walk in centre, emergency dental services, GP, pharmacy, or another more appropriate local service.
If you or your loved one have a life-threatening illness or injury, then you should always dial 999.

How the NHS and care services use your information
MGS Medical Practice is one of many organisations working in the health and care system to improve care for patients and the public)
Whenever you use a health or care service, such as attending Accident & Emergency or using Community Care services, important information about you is collected in a patient record for that service. Collecting this information helps to ensure you get the best possible care and treatment.
The information collected about you when you use these services can also be used and provided to other organisations for purposes beyond your individual care, for instance to help with:
- improving the quality and standards of care provided
- research into the development of new treatments
- preventing illness and diseases
- planning services
This may only take place when there is a clear legal basis to use this information. All these uses help to provide better health and care for you, your family and future generations. Confidential patient information about your health and care is only used like this where allowed by law.
Most of the time, anonymised data is used for research and planning so that you cannot be identified in which case your confidential patient information isn’t needed.
You have a choice about whether you want your confidential patient information to be used in this way. If you are happy with this use of information you do not need to do anything. If you do choose to opt out your confidential patient information will still be used to support your individual care.
To find out more or to register your choice to opt out, please visit www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters. On this web page you will:
- See what is meant by confidential patient information
- Find examples of when confidential patient information is used for individual care and examples of when it is used for purposes beyond individual care
- Find out more about the benefits of sharing data
- Understand more about who uses the data
- Find out how your data is protected
- Be able to access the system to view, set or change your opt-out setting
- Find the contact telephone number if you want to know any more or to set/change your opt-out by phone
- See the situations where the opt-out will not apply
You can also find out more about how patient information is used at:
https://www.hra.nhs.uk/information-about-patients/ (which covers health and care research); and
https://understandingpatientdata.org.uk/what-you-need-know (which covers how and why patient information is used, the safeguards and how decisions are made)
You can change your mind about your choice at any time.
Data being used or shared for purposes beyond individual care does not include your data being shared with insurance companies or used for marketing purposes and data would only be used in this way with your specific agreement.
