If you receive a text message from the practice regarding your diabetes risk this is a programme we are promoting at the moment and the texts are not a scam.

Data for Planning & Research

From 1st September 2021, patient data extractions from GP records are changing. The new extraction is designed to help support the planning and commissioning of services. However, there is much media frenzy at the moment about how bad this is, patient records will be shared with the world so no patient data will be safe. However, in reality, what is shared is

any living patient registered at a GP practice in England when the collection started - this includes children and adults

any patient who died after 1 July 2021, and was previously registered at a GP practice in England when the data collection started

NHS Digital will not collect patients’ names or addresses. Any other data that could directly identify patients (such as NHS Number, date of birth, full postcode) is replaced with unique codes which are produced by de-identification software before the data is shared with NHS Digital.

Opting Out – Patients can register a:

Type 1 opt-out (opting out of NHS Digital collecting your data) – No patient data will be collected, patients need to complete and return to us a Type 1 opt out form Opt out form

National Data opt-out (opting out of NHS Digital sharing your data) - go to the website above


There are a few patients we have been unable to get hold of to book second doses so if you have not heard from us please email us asap - and we will book you in.
