Data Care Sharing
Certain information about you helps us to provide better care. Your medical records can now be used by the NHS to improve services offered. This information, along with your postcode and NHS number (but not your name), is sent securely to the Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) and NHS England. You do have a choice about your data - if you are happy for your information to be used in this way, you don't need to do anything. Alternatively, if you don't want to share this information, please contact the Surgery by email, phone or in person. Further information can be found at the link below.
This year's Flu Clinic
Our Flu vaccinations have started in earnest - if you are 65 years or older or in an "at risk" group, you are entitled to a free flu vaccination which gives you good protection against catching the Flu for up to 12 months. Please ask at reception or telephone the Surgery to book an appointment.
The new "111" NHS Service
The new NHS 111 service was introduced on the 15th March 2013 to work in parallel with the existing 999 service. After this date NHS Direct closed and calls to our Out of Hours GP Service go via 111. This service is being introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services -
you will be able to call 111 when you need medical services quickly but which
are not considered to be urgent, and you can continue to call 999 for all other medical emergencies.
