COVID PRESS RELEASE – 16.7.2021
Local people urged to follow ‘hands, face, space’ in GP practices to keep patients and staff safe
Patients and visitors to GP practices across Suffolk and north east Essex are being reminded they must continue to wear face coverings and observe social distancing rules from 19 July when lockdown rules ease.
Health and care leaders say while restrictions are being eased in some public places, strict infection control measures need to be followed in healthcare settings. This will reduce the risk of vulnerable people from becoming infected and help prevent Covid outbreaks that could result in the temporary closure of a surgery.

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.

April 2015 -
Named GP for all patients
As part of a national programme, from April 2015 all practices are required to provide their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them.
At the Hopton and Stanton surgeries, patients have been registered to a named GP and they will be the GP with this responsibility. If you do not know who your registered GP is, please feel free to contact the surgery and a receptionist will be happy to inform you.
You may continue to request to see any GP for your appointments.
