Covid-19 Guidance from 19th July 2021

Our priority is to keep our patients and our staff safe during this time.  The guidance for healthcare settings states that Covid-19 Safety measures should remain the same, so we ask patients to follow the below rules:

  • Face coverings to be worn when in the surgery
  • 2 metre distancing (or 1 metre plus) when in the surgery
  • Please use the hand gel provided when attending the surgery
  • Patients should not attend more than 5 minutes before their appointment time – if you attend early, you will be asked to wait outside or in your car until your appointment time.

General Practice Data for Planning and Research

NHS Digital has issued General Practices with a Data Provision Notice for Planning and Research. This means we are required to share your information with them unless you tell us not to. Extraction is due to begin on the 1st Sept 2021.

The NHS needs data about the patients it treats in order to plan and deliver its services and to ensure that care and treatment provided is safe and effective. The General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection will help the NHS to improve health and care services for everyone by collecting patient data that can be used to do this. 

For more information see General Practice Data for Planning and Research: GP Practice Privacy Notice.
