e-Consults – Important Update to Patients:

Please note that with immediate effect, the e-Consult service, for the Practice, has had to be adapted, to make it possible for us to offer on the day GP appointments.

Once the day’s e-Consult allocated slots have been used, the service will be switched off until the next working day.

This is to help us to safely manage demand and ensures that our Doctors are able to respond to your e-Consult enquiry within the correct time scale.

If you find that the e-Consult service is unavailable, please try using it again, on the next working day.

The e-Consult service is continually under review, and we thank you for your understanding of this slight change, at this time.

Nhs Digital has recently announced it is setting up a new primary care data collection service.

There is more information about this under the 'NHS Digital - GPDfPR' heading

NHS Digital - GPDfPR

NHS Digital has recently announced it is setting up a new primary care data collection service.  The new data collection process is to begin from the 1st July 2021.

As a GP Practice, to improve health and care services for everyone,  we already share patient data for the purposes of:

  • Monitoring the long-term safety and effectiveness of care
  • Planning how to deliver better health and care services
  • Preventing the spread of infectious diseases
  • Identifying new treatments and medicines through health research

The new GPDfPR service will now also help to support:

  • researching the long-term impact of coronavirus on the population
  • Analysing healthcare inequalities
  • Researching and developing cures for serious illnesses
