CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:

Following Government guidelines ALL patients visiting the practice will be asked to wear a face covering. If you present at the practice without a face covering we will have to send you away .

Face coverings are not only to protect yourself but also the safety of other patients as well as our Doctors, Nurses & other staff members.

We thought this handy government link on ways you can make your own face coverings would be helpful; they don’t have to be a surgical masks.

IF ANYONE WHO LIVES IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD DISPLAYS ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS THEN YOU MUST ISOLATE FOR 14 DAYS.

PLEASE CONTACT YOUR GP ONLY IF YOU HAVE SHORTNESS OF BREATH OR CHEST PAIN .

If you have serious symptoms that you cannot manage at home, please use NHS 111 online (Please only call NHS 111 if you cannot get online).

After 7 days of self-isolation, if you feel better and no longer have a high temperature you can return to your normal routine. If you have not had any signs of improvement after 7 days and have not already sought medical advice, you should use NHS111 online (you should only call NHS111 if you cannot get online) before you leave your home or let visitors in.

Cough may persist for several weeks in some people, despite the coronavirus infection having cleared. A persistent cough alone does not mean that you must continue to stay at home for more than 7 days.

Extended Hours

Patient Access: When you request to book appointments online a print off with your log in details is generated and left for collection at the front desk. If you haven't received your log in details yet, why not ask the receptionist when you next visit the surgery!

Health & Social Care Data

Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone.

This information along with your postcode, NHS number, date of birth and gender (but NOT your name), is sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information.

This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.

The type of information shared, and how it is shared, is controlled by law and strict confidentiality rules.

YOU HAVE A CHOICE: If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this happening, please speak to practice staff or ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet. You can also find more information at www.nhs.uk/caredata

PLEASE NOTE:  We have been advised that we are unable to AUTOMATICALLY opt you out of this scheme (known as 'care.data') even if you have already opted-out of the NHS Summary Care Record sharing scheme and/or the Local Care Record sharing scheme, so you will still need to complete an opt-out form specifically for Care.Data.

You can change your mind at any time and as many times as you wish; just speak to a member of staff at the Practice.
