You may have seen in national news items that the Government are considering extending the vaccine offer to 16 - 17 year olds.
There is nothing you need to do now - you will be contacted and invited for your vaccination as soon as the programme is up-and-running.
We are currently waiting for the Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to update and publish.
We are also currently awaiting guidance on the vaccination of 12 - 17 year old clinically vulnerable children and will be in touch as and when we have further information.
We currently have building work in progress while we extend our car park! We will have heavy machinery on site. Please only come to the surgery if it is necessary. Do not pass through the surgery gates or leave the Surgery building without a member of staff escorting you. Thank you for your cooperation whilst we try to keep you and our Staff safe!

The current NHS Digital (NHSD) extract of GP data for Research purposes (known as the GPDPR) has been delayed due to NHSD wishing to review the way in which this data will be collected, to conduct more public involvement and information about the plans and change the way in which patients can opt out of the extract of their GP data.
Currently the only way to opt out is to complete a Type 1 opt out form and return this to the practice by the 1st September. However, this extract will not be taken until the NHSD have changed the way it will take the data and respect the patient’s choice for using their data. NHSD are introducing the following changes to the opt out process which will mean that patients will be able to change their opt-out status at any time.
To complete the type 1 out form please go to 'do it online' on our website and click on 'links to documents' then click on GP Data Opt out FAQ document.
This means that you can opt out at any time in the future and NHSD will delete data that they already have taken for research purposes, the deadline of the 01/09/2021 has been delayed until a new system of opt out is developed. Hopefully, this will be a simple centralised approach via the NHS app or NHS website to avoid paper form and administration work for your GP.
We will update you when we know more about the NHSD plans to change how you can control who has access to your data.
