Following the COVID-19 booster announcement from the Prime Minister on Sunday 12 December 2021, we  are working to provide vaccinations for all eligible adults aged over 18 in line with national timeframes, so we have to prioritise GP services and pause some routine healthcare appointments.

Data Collected by NHS – What you need to know

Posted on July 12th, 2021

Concerned about your information being shared?  What you need to know.

Patient data from GP medical records kept by GP practices in England is used respectfully, securely and safely every day to improve health, care and services through planning and research, helping to find better treatments and improve patient care.  Data collected by the NHS is only used for health and care purposes. It is never shared with marketing or insurance companies.

The NHS is planning to introduce an improved way for GP practices to share information about patients- called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection.  News of these plans has caused some concern to some of our patients, who have decided that they don’t want their data to be involved.

We have now been informed that no data will be shared in this new way until 1 September this year.  This delay is to enable the national organisation NHS digital to clearly explain their plans to the public and health professionals, as well as to thoroughly investigate any concerns that have been raised.

If you have already been in touch with the practice to ask to be ‘opted out’ of your identifiable information being shared outside of our practice for any purpose, your request will be honoured.  This will not affect your own care. However, nobody’s data will be shared in this new way before 1 September.  If you would like to find out more about why the NHS collects and uses data, you can call o0300 3035678 or please go to this website

To register your opt-out preference please go to the form section and fill the “Type 1 Opt-Out” form.
