Flu clinics update (08.09.21)

You will probably have seen information in the media saying that there will be a delay to this year's flu clinics across the country. Like other Practices, we received an email on Friday 3rd September from the company who provide our flu vaccines stating that due to ‘unforeseen road freight challenges’ there could be a one-to-two-week delay to when our flu vaccines are delivered. Given that we do not yet know when our delivery will arrive and there is still a chance, we may receive it in time for the first clinic on Saturday 2nd October 9am to 3pm .

We have decided not to re-schedule just yet as we want you have access to your flu vaccine as soon as possible, however, we will not invite you until we have heard our confirmed delivery date from the supplier. 

We know this is disappointing news and we still have our fingers crossed that the delivery will get to us on time. We will keep updating the news section on our website so please make sure you check here regularly and if you have not given us your mobile phone number or consented to us contacting you by text please do so – it helps us get information to you as quickly as possible. Please do not contact us to ask if the clinics have been rescheduled – we will send texts and letters once we know. Thank you.

From 26 July 2021  there will be routine (non-urgent) pre-bookable telephone appointments available to book online or via reception each afternoon.

From 19th July, nothing will change at the surgery.  Patients will still need to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser whilst in the surgery.  Staff will continue to wear PPE.   Thank you for your co-operation.

Coronavirus notice:

Please see our Special Privacy Notice and COVID-19 Privacy Notice with regards to your data processing during these unprecedented times.  

Due to advice given by the BMA regarding the recent Coronavirus outbreak, we have temporarily had to stop our Drop-in facility, our early morning and late appointment 'extended hours' and also all future bookable online appointments.  This is for the health and safety of EVERYONE.  We apologise for this inconvenience and hope that normal service will resume in the near future.

Watch out in both surgeries for our campaign to get patients registered for online services.

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.
