Redirecting confidential patient information
From May 2015, PCS sites were required to stop redirecting confidential patient information on behalf of GP practices, as this process did not comply with NHS England information governance or current legislation. Your practice should mark envelopes ‘return to sender’ and send the information back (in bulk/ batches if necessary) to the provider who sent it initially. NHS England confirmed this process in a letter to GP Practices in May 2015. Please click here to view this information.
The National Engagement Team (NET)
The move to a national PCSE service is supported by our locally based NET team, who are here to provide hands-on support as we introduce new arrangements for accessing primary care support services. Contact details for your local NET contacts.
If you feel the need to complain, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to your feedback with a unique reference number to be used on future correspondence relating to the matter. A case handler will be assigned to your complaint who will update you on progress and contact you if we need any further information. With all complaints, we aim to respond in writing within 40 working days, in line with NHS England’s complaints process.
From 5 February 2018, all telephone calls previously taken by the ACE office in Clacton have transferred to PCSE Customer Support Centre on 0333 014 2884.
