YOUR PATIENT DATA MATTERS TO US!!!

 

Following on from recent news and social media speculation about NHS Digital and data sharing as a number of posts are circulating on social media about the national data opt-out, containing incorrect information. We thought it may be helpful to provide some key information and links to help you with your decision making and if you might be now thinking of opting out of sharing any of your data as it’s your choice.

Understanding the national data opt-out - NHS Digital

Important information

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Safety of our patients and staff is of paramount importance.

8.00am - 12.00pm

 In the event of a medically urgent problem between the hours of 8.00am and 6.30pm, please call the surgery to be booked into an urgent telephone slot

 

 IF YOU DEVELOP SYMPTOMS, SUCH AS NEW CONTINUOUS COUGH, FEVER OR LOSS OF SMELL OR TASTE, YOU MUST SELF-ISOLATE FOR AT LEAST 10 DAYS.

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY.

IF YOUR SYMPTOMS WORSEN, PLEASE CALL 111 FOR FURTHER ADVICE.

Referrals During the Covid-19 Pandemic

There have been reports in the media stating that NHS routine referrals are back up and running.

At a local level, these are being restarted at different times and it is still the case that some routine referral pathways remain closed.

We are monitoring the situation regularly. If a GP provides you with a routine NHS referral, our referrals team will only send this when it is possible and will contact you once this has been processed – this may be via text message.

May we therefore politely ask that you do not call the surgery to chase your referral. The situation is changing on an almost daily basis so please continue to bear with us through all this.

The above does not apply to suspected cancer or urgent referrals.
