Noticeboard

The Staff and GP's would like to say a big THANK YOU to patients for their generous Christmas Gifts 

You will probably know that your doctors' surgeries and your local hospital are under extreme pressure especially as there are a lot of viral infections around at this time of year.  We want to be able to provide the best care to all of our patients but especially those who are the most unwell.  To help us to help you in this way, there are a few simple things that you can do:

  • Before ringing your surgery, remember that your local Pharmacy can help with most self-limiting illnesses.
  • Stock up on simple preparations and medicines, such as paracetamol, calpol/nurofen for children, anti-diarrhoeal medicine rehydration mixtures and indigestion remedies (all available from your Pharmacy) 
  • Remember to stock up on any of your repeat medications in good time for Christmas.
  • Please spread this message to your family and friends.

Staff Update - We are very sorry to let our patients know that Dr Rosie Frankenberg will be retiring from the Surgery at the beginning of February 2020.  We want to thank Rosie for  her hard work and contribution to our Surgery since she joined us as a Partner in April 2018 and prior to then when she helped us a locum GP.  Good luck and best wishes are sent from us all.

Did you know you can still have your free flu vaccination ? If you are aged 65 or over or are in an "at Risk" group please ask Reception to book you in for your vaccination.  Flu can be unpleasant and it is important to ensure that sufficient patients do have their vaccination to safeguard enough immunity to protect the wider population.

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.
