Using your Health Data for Planning and Research

Information about your health and care helps the NHS to improve your individual care, speed up diagnosis, plan your local services and research new treatments.

It can also help research organisations to explore new treatments or make discoveries.

You can decide that you do not want your information to be used in this way.

There are two main options;

Option 1: Opting out of the GP Data for Planning and Research (GPDDR) Formally known as GPES.

This means you don't want your data to be extracted from your GP clinical system and used for Planning and Research Purposes. You can opt out at any time but opting out before the end of June 2021 will mean your data is not extracted by the new process. Opting out after that date will mean that no further extractions will occur. Find out more.

Option 2: Opting out of NHS Digital using or sharing your health data (held by any provider, not just your GP), for Planning and Research purposes.

You can opt out at any time.  Find out more.

How to register for online appointment booking

Appointments line: 01359 253700

Booking Online: The online booking system enables you to book an available appointment with the doctor of your choice at your convenience.  Some additional appointments are released on the day for urgent same day appointment requests.

Should a suitable appointment not be available online please contact the surgery appointments line on 01359 253700 and a receptionist will endeavour to help you with your specific request.

Please note that at times of heavy demand, such as winter pressures or during holiday periods, you may have to wait a little longer for a routine non urgent appointment.

You can telephone at 8 am on the day you would like to be seen for an urgent available appointment.  All genuinely medically urgent cases are seen on the same day, but not necessarily by the doctor of your choice.  You are asked to confine your discussion to the urgent problem.

Appointments for blood tests need to be booked with the phlebotomist.

Emergencies: If you need attention in an emergency telephone 01359 251192.

Telephone Consultations: We are always happy to pre-book a telephone consultation with a doctor or nurse if you feel it is not necessary for you to attend the surgery but would like medical advice. Please inform the receptionist of your preference. The doctors are happy to talk to you on the telephone at other times as this can sometimes save having to make an appointment.  However, the doctors are not interrupted during their surgeries so please try to telephone between 11.30 am and 1 pm or between 6 pm and 6.20 pm, when a doctor will usually be available to speak with you.  If a doctor is not available at the time please be prepared to leave a message for them so that they can return your call.

For full details of the consultation times of all our consulting staff see the Practice Information Page 'Consulting Times'.
