Noticeboard


  • COVID VACCINATIONS: Please do NOT call or turn up at the surgery or the local hospital to enquire about COVID vaccinations. We know that patients and all health and social care staff are eager to find out when they will receive their COVID vaccination. The NHS is prioritising vaccinating those people who experts have agreed will benefit from it the most and we are systemically working through all the eligible groups according to the national priorities. Please be assured that we will contact you directly, when it is your turn to book your vaccination and we will answer all your questions at your appointment. Health and care teams across Somerset are working exceptionally hard to roll out our local vaccination programme in Somerset in line with the JCVI's prioritisation and we are continuing to vaccinate people aged 80 and over, care home residents and staff, as well as widening out the offer to frontline health and social care staff. Please continue to attend any vaccination appointments as planned. If there are any changes we will contact you direct - please do not call the surgery. Thank you

  • Please note: The surgery will be CLOSED on Tuesday 16th February between 13:00 and 14:00 for staff training.

  • Over 50's flu vaccinations: We are now able to offer flu vaccinations to patients aged 50-64 years. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we strongly recommend you take this opportunity to vaccinate yourself against seasonal influenza. Please contact our reception team on 01823 333355 to make your appointment.

  • We politely ask ALL patients to wear a face mask when attending the surgery. If you do not have a mask, you will be asked to rebook your appointment.

  • To reduce your chances of catching COVID-19 and reduce pressure on your local GP practice during this busy time, appointments will be carried out over the phone, through video consultations or online via our website Engage Consult, unless there is a clinical need for you to come into the practice. This will help minimise the risk while continuing to ensure people get the care and advice they need.

Your Data Matters

Your Data Matters to the NHS

Information about your health and care helps us to improve your individual care, speed up diagnosis, plan your local services and research new treatments. The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used.

How your data is used

Information about your individual care such as treatment and diagnoses is collected about you whenever you use health and care services. It is also used to help us and other organisations for research and planning such as research into new treatments, deciding where to put GP clinics and planning for the number of doctors and nurses in your local hospital.  It is only used in this way when there is a clear legal basis to use the information to help improve health and care for you, your family and future generations.

Wherever possible we try to use data that does not identify you, but sometimes it is necessary to use your confidential patient information.

You have a choice

You do not need to do anything if you are happy about how your information is used. If you do not want your confidential patient information to be used for research and planning, you can choose to opt out securely online or through a telephone service. You can change your mind about your choice at any time.

Will choosing this opt-out affect your care and treatment?

No, choosing to opt out will not affect how information is used to support your care and treatment. You will still be invited for screening services, such as screenings for bowel cancer.

What do you need to do?

If you are happy for your confidential patient information to be used for research and planning, you do not need to do anything.
