SHIELDING EXTREMELY VULNERABLE PATIENTS


As you may be aware the government have sent over a million letters to patients advising them that they are in a ‘severely vulnerable at risk’ group and should isolate for the next 12 weeks.   These letters were produced using hospital data and not data from GP Practices. As a result the government announced that the GP practices will be writing to additional patients.   As you may have noticed, there has been a delay in this process centrally by NHS England / NHS Digital. We have been informed that we can now send the additional letters to those patients we have identified as meeting the criteria to be in the shielded group. These will be sent by 15th April at the latest.  If we have your mobile number we will text you to tell you the letter is on its way.  

Blood Tests

blood_tests_4Please note that we have appointments available at the surgery Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 8am and 12am and Tuesdays and Thursdays 8am-10am.  This extended service means that patients are no longer allowed to use the Sevenoaks hospital service.  

Test results

Please wait 5 days from the date of the test before calling for test results and ring after 2pm.  

Confidentiality

The practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. We will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
