Your health records contain a type of data called ‘confidential patient information’. This data can be used to help with research and planning for NHS services throughout the country. You can choose to stop your ‘confidential patient information’ being used for research and planning. You can also make a choice for someone else like your children under the age of 13. NHS Digital will never sell your data and there are strict rules about how NHS can use your data. It’s only shared securely and safely and this data helps the NHS. It has been used to find the first treatment for Coronavirus and for vaccine research.
If you are happy with your ‘confidential patient information’ being used for research and planning, you do not need to do anything.
Whatever you choose will not impact your individual healthcare. Please click on the link to find out more and to Opt-Out if you wish to do so. https://www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters/
You may also choose to Opt-Out of any ‘identifiable patient data’ being shared outside of the GP practice for purposes except your own care. To do this you will need to complete a form and return it to the practice. Type 1 Opt-Out Form
Due to Coronavirus restrictions we are still unable to offer everyone a face to face appointment due to the capacity of our waiting room and social distancing rules. However, we do have quite a few appointments available to book online or through our reception team.
Please try booking online first before phoning Yetminster Reception on 01935 872530 if you need a routine face to face appointment.
Your General Practice is unable to offer you a certification of Covid vaccination, a vaccination passport or a letter to prove you have been vaccinated against Covid-19. You can however find details of all your vaccinations on the NHS App.
Proof of vaccination documents will also be available by calling 119 and requesting a paper version. Your GP surgery is unable to provide you with any such proof that will be usable for travel purposes.
It is with great sadness that we have to inform you all that the Evershot Branch site will not be re-opening. Please read the full article here.
Our principal aim is to offer a friendly, first-class service in caring for your health.
We hope to achieve this through a team approach involving doctors, administration staff, nurses, dispensers, midwife and health visitor.
We believe in bringing a broad range of services to our rural setting, in order to minimise inconvenience from travel and waiting times for our patients. To this end we have in-house physiotherapy, chiropody and cognitive behaviour therapy.
