21.09.2020 COVID Testing information for patients

 

At a glance

 

Supply for COVID-19 tests is not currently meeting demand.  There are things you can do to help:

 

·         Only book a test if you or someone you care for has specific symptoms of COVID-19

·         To book a test(s) please go to https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus or phone 119

·         DO NOT phone NHS 111, your GP surgery or visit your Emergency Department, as they have no access to tests

·         Testing centres are not walk-in – you will need an appointment and cannot be tested without one

·         If you can’t get a test immediately or near to you keep trying the website address as more tests are added throughout the course of each day and you will often find that you can book a test quickly by trying again

 

The aim is to get your test results within 48 hours. However, if you have been awaiting your results for longer than five days and want to ask when you should receive them please contact the Coronavirus testing helpline: 0300 303 2713

 

Flu vaccines 2020: We are now taking bookings for flu injections. If you are eligible please telephone the surgery to book into one of our flu clinics. If you do not wish to have the vaccine please could you still contact to let us know so we can take you off our list.

Please be aware that our flu clinics will run slightly differently this year to ensure social distancing is maintained. You may be asked to wait outside or in your car. You will be required to wear a mask unless you are exempt. Please ensure you wear appropriate clothing to ensure the vaccine can be given to you ask quick as possible. A one way system will be in operation at the practice. You will be asked to stand to have the vaccine unless you are unable.

Thank you all for your continued cooperation.

 

We are unable to produce any letters for patients regarding exemptions to wearing a face covering. Please follow the clearly defined government guidelines. Face coverings on Public Transport, Shops and Supermarkets

From 17th July due to an increase in demand if you need to speak to a doctor please call before 11.00am. After this time we will only be able to deal with calls of an urgent clinical need. We are still operating a telephone triage service so please only attend the practice if you have an agreed booked appointment.

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.
