Welcome to Baldwins Lane Surgery
At Baldwins Lane Surgery we try to maintain a very personal, relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
PATIENT NOTICES - July 2021
Dear Patients, mask wearing will become optional from 19th July 2021 as per government guidelines. We must stress however that the same guidance suggests caution and recommends ongoing wearing of masks in closed spaces, small areas and where vulnerable people will be present.
Sadly COVID 19 remains in the population.
Public Health Safeguards dictate that the safety of patients and those delivering their care is paramount. As you will be in close proximity to our clinicians when you come to us we will continue wearing masks and respectfully request that you continue to do so.
Hand Sanitiser will be available throughout the surgery and for the present we will continue to encourage distancing and operate our one way system through the premises.

COVID 19 VACCINE
National Covid-19 Vaccinations Programme
NHS England are now inviting anyone over 18 to book COVID-19 vaccination at designated mass vaccination sites. If you would like to arrange an appointment then please book via the NHS website or call 119 free of charge.
You may have read in the press about "General Practice Data for Planning and Research" (GPDPR). This is a new way that NHS Digital will collect data from the GP record to help plan for future NHS healthcare. The new way of collecting reduces the amount of work we in the practice have to do to share the information.
Any data collected will be pseudonymised (meaning it can't be identified with an individual).
There are two types of opt out to consider.
TYPE 1 - this stops any data going from the practice to NHS Digital.
NATIONAL DATA - this will allow the data to do to NHS Digital, but stops any data going further than that.
Remember in both instances, the data isn't identifiable to you.
To opt out of Type 1: complete the form here https://nhs-prod.global.ssl.fastly.net/…/type-1-opt-out-for… before 23rd June and return it to us (by email or in hard copy). We will then add the information to your medical record.
To opt out of National Data, visit https://www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters/manage-your-choice/ or use the NHS App.
For more information on GPDPR see https://digital.nhs.uk/…/general-practice-data-for-planning…
