Care Quality Commission Care Quality Commission

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.

ONLINE BOOKING & PRESCRIPTION SERVICE

Please note we have temporarily ceased online face to face pre-bookable appointments to help us deal with the coronavirus pandemic. Instead we will be offering online bookable telephone appointments where we will ring you back at the allocated appointment time.

We thank you for your understanding and patience during these unprecedented circumstances.  

You can still use the system to request repeat prescriptions online.

In order to access this service you will first need to contact the reception to request a registration form. This will generate a unique set of details to enable you to register with the online patient access service.

We have a SMS messaging system allowing patients to receive appointment reminders and messages relating to your personal medical care direct to your mobile phone. This includes invitations to specialist clinics (such as influenza vaccination clinics)

We do not undertake any form of marketing.

This is an automated system and we have sent out a text message to all our existing patients to obtain their consent. New patients will be asked for their consent on registering.

If you wish you can opt out of receiving text messages at any time. Please contact the surgery for further information or to update your contact details.
