COVID 19 PRACTICE INFORMATION LATEST UPDATE REGARDING THE COVID-19 VACCINE

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









IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE NHS DIGITAL GPDPR PROGRAMME & WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU


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.
