Noticeboard

Following Dr Robinson's retirement and the recruitment of his replacement Dr Sabine Kersten, we tried to notify his patient list by email (if we have patient email addresses recorded) or by post. It has come to our attention that some patients have not received this information. We would advise that patients check their Spam Inbox for this email. Thank you.

COVID-19 Updates

  • If you need to visit the Practice please wear a cloth face covering. 

  • We are not currently accepting returns of unwanted/unused medications until July at the earliest.

  • To alleviate pressure on the surgery during this busy time our dispensary will only be open from 9-12 for collection of prescriptions.

  • Please keep to one in the Practice at all times. If you need to enter the Practice and there is someone in Reception please wait outside in a queue with a 2 metre distance from the person in front of you.

  • If you do enter the Practice please gel your hands with the sanitiser provided.

  • In Dorset our focus is testing of frontline staff first as the availability of testing is limited.  GPs may order an antibody test as part of routine blood tests where patients have received appropriate counselling and consent but we would expect these numbers to be low as general practice and local labs do not currently have the capacity to undertake this work. We will provide further information about access to tests for patients as the research and guidance develops on this but in the meantime we would ask that patients do not request antibody testing.

The surgery will be closed for training on:

Thursday 23rd July - 3.30 - 6.30

Thursday 17th September - 3.30 - 6.30

Tuesday 13th October - 3.30 - 6.30

Tuesday 17th November - 1.30 - 4.30

2021

Thursday 21st January - 3.30 - 6.30

Wednesday 10th March - 3.30 - 6.30

Data Choices

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.
