Potential Conflicts of Interest

As you are probably aware the NHS is changing and GP's and Patients are being encouraged to work together to redesign services and pathways to allow more cost effective care, closer to home.

This brief note is to ensure you are clear that his has produced a potential conflict of interest where clinical staff sometimes needs to take on the role of both referrer and provider. As a result they have a commercial interest in the provision of such services; this also includes Newton Place Pharmacy.

Patients should be aware that all consultation and referrals discussions around choice of providers. Any financial interest there may be in an organisation providing healthcare will not influence the way our GPs prescribe, treat or refer.

The practice keeps a register, recording a declaration of any financial interests in provider organisations and services. This register is available for inspection by the general public. Please contact the management team either in person at the surgery or by emailing CCCCG.newtonplace@nhs.net.


Better Information for Better Care

Please view our leaflet on how we are making changes to improve patient care, by making it possible for other Clinicians, who are treating you, to view parts of your medical record.

These clinicians will only be allowed to access your GP ecord if you agree they can!
