Collection of GP Data NHS Digital released a statement last month regarding the launch of the new system they will be using to collect GP data, called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) service. The statement highlights that NHS Digital will only share data with organisations who have a legal basis and meet strict criteria to use it for local, regional and national planning, policy development, commissioning, public health and research purposes. They have also developed a public advice webpage to explain how and why the data is being used.

Appointments

The Reception is the main point of contact for patients. It is staffed between 8 a.m. and 6.30 p.m. from Monday to Friday (except Bank Holidays)

Our reception staff will try to help you as quickly and efficiently as possible. If we can, we will try to make the appointment with the health professional you request at the time you request. This is usually possible but we ask your understanding if this is not possible.

You can book: in person at the reception, or by phoning 01371 810328, or book at appointment on-line (see the SystmOnline section of this website for further details)
