The doctors and staff at Kirklands surgery in Portsmouth are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups
Situation and Car Parking
We regret that there is insufficient space to be able to offer patients car parking facilities on the premises. However, there is ample space in the driveway for private cars or taxis to `drop off’ and `pick up’ patients who have difficulty walking. The best car parking possibilities are in Powerscourt Road.
NAMED ACCOUNTABLE GP FOR ALL PATIENTS
All Kirklands patients now have a named accountable GP. The named accountable GP is responsible for the patients' overall care at the practice. If you would like to know who that GP is please contact the surgery. If you have a preference as to which GP that is, the practice will make every effort to accommodate this request. It will not always be possible for you to see the allocated GP; when booking a routine appointment patients are also free to book the GP of their choice. When requesting a same day emergency appointment it may not always be possible to book the doctor of your choice.

How the NHS and care services use your information
Kirklands Surgery is one of many organisations working in the health and care system to improve care for patients and the public).
Whenever you use a health or care service, such as attending Accident & Emergency or using Community Care services, important information about you is collected in a patient record for that service. Collecting this information helps to ensure you get the best possible care and treatment.
The information collected about you when you use these services can also be used and provided to other organisations for purposes beyond your individual care, for instance to help with:
- improving the quality and standards of care provided
- research into the development of new treatments
- preventing illness and diseases
This may only take place when there is a clear legal basis to use this information. All these uses help to provide better health and care for you, your family and future generations. Confidential patient information about your health and care is only used like this where allowed by law.
Most of the time, anonymised data is used for research and planning so that you cannot be identified in which case your confidential patient information isn’t needed.
You have a choice about whether you want your confidential patient information to be used in this way. If you are happy with this use of information you do not need to do anything. If you do choose to opt out your confidential patient information will still be used to support your individual care.

National Data Opt-out
Your Data Matters to the NHS
Information about your health and care helps the NHS to improve your individual care, speed up diagnosis, plan your local services and research new treatments.
In May 2018, the strict rules about how this data can and cannot be used were strengthened. The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used.
You can choose whether your confidential patient information is used for research and planning.
Type 1 Opt-out: medical records held at your GP practice
You can tell your GP practice if you do not want your confidential patient information held in your GP medical record to be used for purposes other than your individual care. This is commonly called a type 1 opt-out. This opt-out request can only be recorded by your GP.
If you choose a Type 1 opt-out, please complete our National Type 1 Data Opt Out Form
Type 2 Opt-out: information held by NHS Digital
A Type 2 opt-out is an objection that prevents an individuals personal confidential information from being shared outside of NHS Digital, that is used for research and planning.
Previously you could tell your GP surgery if you did not want NHS Digital to share confidential patient information that is collected from across the health and care service for purposes other than your individual care. This was called a type 2 opt-out.
From 25 May 2018 the type 2 opt-out has been replaced by the national data opt-out. Type 2 opt-outs that have been recorded previously have been automatically converted to national data opt-outs.
