COVID 19 PRACTICE INFORMATION

The data held within the GP medical records of patients is used by NHS England to support health and care planning and research in England, helping to find better treatments and improve patient outcomes for everyone.


NHS Digital has developed a new way to collect this data, called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) data collection.


The Government announced on the 8th June 2021 that the planned data collection which was due to start at the beginning of July 2021 has now been delayed to September 2021.


What Will the Data Be Used For?


Patient data collected from general practice is needed to support a wide variety of research and analysis to help run and improve health and care services.


The General Practice Data for Planning and Research service will also help to support the planning and commissioning of health and care services, the development of health and care policy, public health monitoring and interventions and enable many different areas of research.


Opting out


If you don’t want your identifiable patient data to be shared for purposes except for your own care, you can opt-out by registering a Type 1 Opt-out or a National Data Opt-out.


To inform the practice of your wish to register for Type 1 Opt-out please complete the following forms  and email them to the the practice (SHECCG.broomhill@nhs.net) or deliver them into the surgery. (This currently needs to be done by the end of August 2021)


You can also view or change your National Data Opt-out choice by the following methods (Please note this can be done at any time)




Your individual care will not be affected if you opt-out using either option.

If you contact the surgery outside of these times your calls will continue to be diverted to the GP collaborative as is currently the case.

PLEASE ONLY RING THE SURGERY OUTSIDE THESE TIMES IF IT IS AN URGENT MATTER.

The dedicated prescription telephone lines will also close.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE COVID-19 VACCINATION

Broomhill & Lodge Moor Surgeries are working closely with the other local practices within our Primary Care Network to provide a COVID-19 vaccine service for all of our patients.

The COVID -19 vaccine service will be a massive logistical undertaking and the Government has provided strict guidelines as to the prioritisation of at risk  patient groups.

As a result we will be contacting patients directly to arrange their vaccination over the coming weeks and months in line with these guidelines.


PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE SURGERY TO ENQUIRE ABOUT THE VACCINE

Please follow this link for more information about the vaccine and the plans we have put in place.


INFORMATION REGARDING VACCINATION STATUS

We are getting numerous requests from patients asking for proof of their vaccination status or for a “vaccination passport”.

As per national guidance we are unable to help with these requests, however the required information can easily be found by following the guide on the gov.uk website
