The Bromley Common Practice believes that it's important to participate in research that can lead to better health outcomes for future generations. As such we are involved in several research initiatives.
Please rest assured however that your personal details will never be passed on to anyone without your prior consent. None of the information we provide to any outside organisation will include 'patient identifiable information' -e.g: your name, address, or date of bith- without your agreement.
The Practice is involved with two large research studies -THIN and CPRD- to which very general information is supplied and combined with that from practices around the UK. This inforamtion is then used to see if certain illnesses are more common in certain areas. Rest assured that no patient identifiable information is passed on.
From time to time we also engage with specific studies that we believe have high merit. In these instances you may be sent a letter from the practice asking you to contact the research team if you wish to be involved. If you do not wish to be involved you can simply ignore the letter. None of your details will be passed onto these teams unless you agree first.
Please see the 'Practice Policies' tab on the right to read more about our Confidentiality Policy.
If you have any questions about our research, please see the websites below, or contact the Practice Manager for further information.
