COVID 19 VACCINE 

This GP practice is not offering 1st dose COVID vaccines for healthy under 50s. Book a 1st dose once you’re eligible at: www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or call 119. New slots are added frequently so check back if you can’t initially see a convenient time/place.
If we are due to give your 2nd dose, we will be in touch in the 8th week. Please do not contact the surgery about the covid-19 vaccine. 

  If you have a mobile number registered with the surgery you may receive a text message inviting you to book your vaccination slot yourself.  If you do not have a mobile do not worry you will still be invited manually over the phone. If you have your mobile registered for your parents please take care to book for the correct person. 

  We are currently using a single site to deliver the vaccinations that is Bridgewater House, by appointment only. Please wait to be invited either by telephone or SMS text. 

Care Data.

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.
