NHS Patient records security breach
You may have read about the Information Commissioner's concerns regarding GP patient records, as reported in The Telegraph and The Times today (18th March).
This breach only affects GP surgeries running TPP's SystmOne patient records database.
Oakley Health Group uses EMIS Web as its patient database software, so please be assured that the breach will not affect any of our patients.
EMIS Web shares data in a completely different way to SystmOne. You can read all about NHS data sharing and Oakley Health Group, including how to opt-out of any or all of it, in our "Your Medical Records" booklet.
Oakley Health Group is planning to allow extraction and uploading of GP data for risk stratification purposes from 13th March.You can read more about this in our risk stratification information sheet
- You can read more about this in our risk stratification information sheet
- The Data Sharing Agreement between Oakley Health Group and Monteagle Surgery can be found here
- Full details about the data extracted from your GP record can be found here
- This is a data extraction for secondary purposes and as such you have the right to opt-out of allowing your GP record to be processed in this way - full details in our information sheet
- Opting out of risk stratification will in no way effect your entitlement to full medical care from either your GP surgery or from any other NHS service (such as hospital trusts or community services)
Recovery is about people improving their health and wellbeing. Recovery also means people finding ways to live a meaningful life, with or without the ongoing symptoms of an illness or condition. Recovery is about people pursuing their individual, unique life goals, beoming an expert in their own self-care and finding a new sense of purpose in life.
The Recovery College in NE Hampshire and Farnham is a new way of supporting people in their recovery. the college offers courses and workshops relating to a range of psychological, mental and physical health conditions.
The courses are aimed at everyone to learn to improve their health and wellbeing, for those who use health services, care for someone who does or are a health professional. We all experience similar things and can learn from each other: everyone is a student.

About the practice.....
Hartley Corner Surgery and The Oaklands Practice are now Oakley Health Group - the largest practice in the area with 14 GPs, 3 GP Trainees and a nursing team of 14. -
So what's changed and what's stayed the same?
Your GP is still the same and you should continue to book appointments in the same way as usual and be seen at your "home practice".
If there is no convenient appointment at your "home practice", you may be offered an additional choice of appointments at the other site
And what's new?
We now run an Urgent Care Clinic daily at each site. This is a temporary measure until a new facility is built which will serve all patients of Oakley Health Group and will be based at Yateley Medical Centre (due to open mid January). Any patients who believes that they need to be seen urgently for treatment on the same day WILL be seen by a clinician on duty.
Appointments are now available in Yateley, with nurses who specialise in Parkinson's Disease, Heart Failure and Palliative Care rather than having to travel to Frimley, Fleet or Farnham.
Appointments are available with an Orthopaedic Practitioner from Frimley Park Hospital, who will give advice on a variety of problems including hips, knees, shoulders, hands etc.
Freya Pullan is our practice pharmacist and is available to provide speedy advice on medication queries. She will also assist the doctors with medication reviews and work with patients to improve the safety and effectiveness of their medications.
Bridget Fairbairn is working with us an a Community Mental Health Practitioner, working with the practice to improve the effectiveness of local mental health provision.
Frank O'Connell has joined us as a Paramedic Practitioner who will be working with the doctors and District Nurses to improve the care patients receive in their own homes.
