Coronavirus – Important information


Visiting our practice? Please continue to wear a face covering and social distance

All of our COVID-19 secure measures remain in place and has not changed since the government guidance on 19th July 21.

For the latest general information on Coronavirus click here. If you think you may have symptoms click here

We are now starting to gradually re introduce normal practice functioning and so our front door will now be open to booked appointments only. Please do not enter the building unless you have an appointment. Please ensure you are wearing a face covering before you enter.  For all other queries please phone us on 01223 364116.

We will also have a limited number of face to face appointments to book in advance. These are to be used by patients that need to be seen by the GP. We are still booking the majority of our GP consultations by phone and you will then be invited for a face to face appointment if needed.

Face to face nurse appointments are booked a week in advance.

As mentioned before, you should only enter the building if you have a pre-booked appointment with a clinician.  You will be expected to use the self check in machine and take a seat. Please do not attend your appointment if you are showing symptoms of coronavirus, have had a positive test or been advised to self isolate due to a positive test. Please call us and we can rearrange this appointment.

Please note that we do not issue letters exempting patients from wearing face coverings in public. This is in line with the guidance that we have received from the local medical committee of the BMA. This guidance is HERE. If you feel you are exempt from wearing a face mask you can download a card HERE

General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) Data Extraction

Patient data from GP medical records kept by GP practices in England is used to improve health, care and services through planning and research, helping to find better treatments and improve patient care. The NHS is introducing an improved way to share this information – called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection. The first extraction is due 1st September 2021.

NHS Digital will collect, analyse, publish and share this patient data to improve health and care services. This includes:

  • Planning and commissioning health and care services
  • Developing a health and social care policy
  • Public health monitoring and interventions (including the coronavirus pandemic)
  • Research

For more information on the GPDPR, including what information is obtained and how to opt-out of sharing your information, please click HERE
