    Patient Data

    The current NHS Digital (NHSD) extract of GP data for Research purposes (known as the GPDPR) has been delayed due to NHSD wishing to review the way in which this data will be collected, to conduct more public involvement and information about the plans and change the way in which patients can opt out of the extract of their GP data. Currently the only way to opt out is to complete a Type 1 opt out form and return this to the practice by the 1st September. However, this extract will not be taken until the NHSD have changed the way it will take the data and respect the patient’s choice for using their data. NHSD are introducing the following changes to the opt out process which will mean that patients will be able to change their opt-out status at any time::- Patients do not need to register a Type 1 opt-out by 1st September to ensure their GP data will not be uploaded. NHS Digital will create the technical means to allow GP data that has previously been uploaded to the system via the GPDPR collection to be deleted when someone registers a Type 1 opt-out. The plan to retire Type 1 opt-outs will be deferred for at least 12 months while we get the new arrangements up and running and will not be implemented without consultation with the RCGP, the BMA and the National Data Guardian. This means that you can opt out at any time in the future and NHSD will delete data that they already have taken for research purposes, the deadline of the 01/09/2021 has been delayed until a new system of opt out is developed. Hopefully, this will be a simple centralised approach via the NHS app or NHS website to avoid paper form and administration work for your GP. We will update you when we know more about the NHSD plans to change how you can control who has access to your data.

    AZ Vaccine manufactured in India –additional information from DHSC

    Following on from the additional queries raised around the AZ vaccine that has been manufactured in India, we have been in touch with DHSC (who are leading on this piece of work) again. They have now provided us with the following additional lines regarding this issue: All AstraZeneca vaccines given in the UK are the same product and appear on the NHS COVID Pass as Vaxzevria. The European Medicines Agency, as well as our own medicines regulator, has authorised this vaccine and travel should not be affected. No Covishield vaccines have been administered in the UK. All doses used in the UK have been subject to rigorous safety and quality checks, including individual batch testing and physical site inspections, by the UK medicine’s regulator, the MHRA. Ensuring safe and open travel with our global partners is a clear priority and we are engaging with international partners on certification to ensure travel for vaccinated people is unhindered in the future. We have spoken to the EU Commission who have confirmed that neither the Commission nor the EMA has advised Member States against accepting travellers vaccinated with ‘SII doses’. Our High Commission in Malta has been discussing this issue with the Maltese Government, who have agreed that they will accept the NHS certificate with the EMA approved AZ Vaxzevria dose. Astra Zeneca vaccine will be recognised in the same way as any other. On the stories specifically about Malta last week: The Maltese authorities have agreed to amend their travel advice so this should not happen again. The government of Malta has advised they will recognise an NHS Covid Pass as valid evidence for entry. They set this out themselves here: https://foreignandeu.gov.mt/en/Pages/Travel-Advice.aspx Anyone who has had their second dose of Astra Zeneca vaccine two weeks or more ago can get an NHS Covid Pass, as set out here: https://foreignandeu.gov.mt/en/Pages/Travel-Advice.aspx The Malta Deputy PM / Health Minister’s page also links directly to our own travel advice and the Malta International Airport page has been updated to reflect the change: https://deputyprimeminister.gov.mt/en/health-promotion/covid-19/Pages/travel.aspx and https://www.maltairport.com/covid19/arrival/

    19th July Update

    As per NHS England's advice we will continue to triage all patients with a phone call prior to offering a face to face appointment. We continue to see many patients face to face when required, and this will be discussed with you. From 19th July, patients (age 11 & over) will still be required to wear a face covering/mask at all times while in the surgery. When NHS England or Public Health change the present advice we will of course follow their guidelines The telephone triage step is required to protect our vulnerable patients who are seen in the surgery. We thank you for your understanding and patience.
