Noticeboard

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is still with us.


Please ensure you bring a face covering (mask or scarf to cover both your nose and mouth) if you are asked to attend by the GP or nurse.  We do not have enough stock available to give out surgical masks to every patient as well as protecting staff.


We can all help control the virus if we stay alert. This means we all must all:


# stay at home as much as possible


# work from home if you can


# limit contact with other people


# keep your distance if you go out or at work (2 metres apart where possible)


# wash your hands regularly


# do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.


YOU must let us know if you have any symptoms suggestive of coronavirus.


If you do not tell us or attempt to hide symptoms from us we are ALL at risk of becoming unwell.  


If staff become unwell the surgery may have to close.


Help is available by telephone or video call and most routine face to face tests or treatments can wait until your symptoms have gone away.


Stay at home and protect the NHS and other members of the public.


Please do not to a GP, Pharmacy or hospital if you have a high temperature of 37.8 or above or a new continuous cough or loss of taste or loss of smell.


Please go online to 111.nhs.uk/covid-19.  Patient should only call 111 if they do not have internet access.


Please use our website or online access to order repeat medication.  We are sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

Data Choices

Your Data Matters to the NHS

Information about your health and care helps us to improve your individual care, speed up diagnosis, plan your local services and research new treatments. The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used.

How your data is used

Information about your individual care such as treatment and diagnoses is collected about you whenever you use health and care services. It is also used to help us and other organisations for research and planning such as research into new treatments, deciding where to put GP clinics and planning for the number of doctors and nurses in your local hospital.  It is only used in this way when there is a clear legal basis to use the information to help improve health and care for you, your family and future generations.

Wherever possible we try to use data that does not identify you, but sometimes it is necessary to use your confidential patient information.

You have a choice

You do not need to do anything if you are happy about how your information is used. If you do not want your confidential patient information to be used for research and planning, you can choose to opt out securely online or through a telephone service. You can change your mind about your choice at any time.

Will choosing this opt-out affect your care and treatment?

No, choosing to opt out will not affect how information is used to support your care and treatment. You will still be invited for screening services, such as screenings for bowel cancer.

What do you need to do?

If you are happy for your confidential patient information to be used for research and planning, you do not need to do anything.
