Visiting our practice? Please continue to wear a face covering and social distance
All of our COVID-19 secure measures remain in place and this will not change when Government guidance changes on 19 July 2021.

This follows the national Infection Prevention Control (IPC) Guidance for all healthcare settings and will help to ensure the safety of our staff and patients at all times.

General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) Data Extraction
Patient data from GP medical records kept by GP practices in England is used to improve health, care and services through planning and research, helping to find better treatments and improve patient care. The NHS is introducing an improved way to share this information – called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection.
In a letter dated 19 July 2021, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Jo Churchill, set out a new process for commencing data collection, moving away from a previously fixed date of 1 September.
