Important update about how information about you helps us to provide better care (you may have already received a government leaflet on this subject); information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care. Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name will be used to link your records in a secure system so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone. We have new leaflets about this available at reception or please go to www.nhs.uk/caredata or (for a short film explaining the changes) http://www.england.nhs.uk/ourwork/tsd/care-data/ for more information. If do not want information that identifies you to be shared outside the GP practice please let us know or get in touch with the Practice Manager to discuss further.
If you are aged 70 or 79 on 1st September 2013 you may be eligible for the new shingles vaccine. Please ask at reception.

We welcome your comments, suggestions and feedback. Forms are available at reception or please contact our Practice Manager, Sally. While we always try to provide the best services possible, there may be times when you feel this has not happened. We do try to discuss and resolve any issues as they occur. However we also have a formal practice complaints procedure. Please contact the Practice Manager in the first instance.
