The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) will take effect in the UK from 25 May 2018. It replaces the existing law on data protection (the Data Protection Act 1998) and gives individuals more rights and protection regarding how their personal data is used by councils. Local councils and parish meetings must comply with its requirements, just like any other organisation.
Our practices and procedures are listed below. If you require further information please contact our Parish Clerk in the first instance.
The local Parish is covered by a number of GP Practices based in Northwich, Weaverham and Frodsham. The most popular, and the only one with a local Surgery (on Weaverham Road, Sandiway), is Danebridge Medical Centre. This page refers only to the Danebridge Patient Participation Group (PPG) - other GP Practices will have their own PPG groups and should be reached through their websites / offices.
The PPG, sometimes also known as the PRG (Patient Reference Group), continue to work with the Practice for the Practice. The PPG is a committee of voluntary patients who support the work of the practice – this unique partnership between patients and their practices is essential to achieving high quality and responsive care. The Danebridge committee meet monthly along with practice representatives to discuss matters arising and to discuss on-going suggested improvements within the practice. From 1 April 2015, it has been a requirement in the GP Contract for all practices to have a PPG.
The role of the PPG includes:
The PPG contains over a dozen volunteers, and a number of them live in our local Parish:
Russell Smith (Webmaster of this website), Sheila Bowker, Les James.
There are quite a number of organisations offering support in the community. The Directories section of this website contains a list of many of these, including 'Addiction Support', 'Carer Support', 'Disabled Support' and 'Medical Support'. The following information relates predominantly to those organisations offering Befriending, Social Isolation and General Support to the community.
