As of September 2021 your data will be shared with NHS Digital to help improve health, care and services
Patient data from GP medical records kept by GP practices in England is used every day 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.
NHS Digital will collect, analyse, publish and share this patient data to improve health and care services for everyone. This includes:
- informing and developing health and social care policy
- planning and commissioning health and care services
- taking steps to protect public health (including managing and monitoring the coronavirus pandemic)
- in exceptional circumstances, providing you with individual care
- enabling healthcare and scientific research
Any data that NHS Digital collects will only be used for health and care purposes. It is never shared with marketing or insurance companies.

NHS Digital will not collect any patient data for patients who have already registered a Type 1 Opt-out in line with current policy. If this changes patients who have registered a Type 1 Opt-out will be informed.
If you do not want your patient data shared with NHS Digital, you can register a Type 1 Opt-out with us. You can register a Type 1 Opt-out at any time. You can also change your mind at any time and withdraw a Type 1 Opt-out.
Data sharing with NHS Digital will start in September 2021.
If you have already registered a Type 1 Opt-out with your GP practice your data will not be shared with NHS Digital.
If you wish to register a Type 1 Opt-out with your GP practice before data sharing starts with NHS Digital, this should be done by returning this form to us by 30 June 2021 to allow time for processing it. If you have previously registered a Type 1 Opt-out and you would like to withdraw this, you can also use the form to do this. You can send the form by post or call 01342 823121 for a form to be sent out to you.
If you register a Type 1 Opt-out after your patient data has already been shared with NHS Digital, no more of your data will be shared with NHS Digital. NHS Digital will however still hold the patient data which was shared with us before you registered the Type 1 Opt-out.
If you do not want NHS Digital to share your identifiable patient data with anyone else for purposes beyond your own care, then you can also register a National Data Opt-out. There is more about National Data Opt-outs and when they apply in the National Data Opt-out section below.
OPT OUT FORM
You can return the completed form by post or by hand, please mark for the attention of Gill Williams.
As reported by the BBC:
England’s NHS app will be available to use as a vaccine passport from Monday, the government has said - but only for those who have had both doses of the jab.
A paper version will also be available - by calling 119 but not through a GP.
Both will be available from Monday, 17 May, when the ban on foreign travel is eased.
The NHS app is separate to the NHS Covid-19 app, which is used for contact tracing.
Please note that asking your practice for detailed coded access to your medical notes WILL NOT mean you can see your vaccination status on the NHS app, our advice is to wait until 17 May 2021.
There is now a phone number that patients can call if they have enquiries regarding the Covid Vaccination Programme which is 0800 433 4545 which is open 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday.

We now request that anyone visiting the surgery wear protection over their mouth and nose. This could be a mask you have brought or a homemade face covering or scarf. This is to reduce your infection risk and to protect other patients and staff. We still advise to only come into the surgery if absolutely necessary.
ONLINE MEDICATION REQUEST FORM
Please complete the attached form and email back to us. This is to allow you access to order your repeat medication on-line instead of coming to the surgery. At this time booking appointments on-line has been suspended.
Patient online registration for repeat medication ONLY
