Noticeboard

We are still open and here for you. We are continuing to provide services as we have been doing throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

Please do not call your GP surgery about vaccines or boosters.  You can find more information about where to get your vaccine and booster at www.northcentrallondonccg.nhs.uk/my-health/covid-19/walk-in-vaccination-clinics, or you can call 119. 

If you would like advice on minor illnesses, you can visit your local pharmacy which can offer clinical advice and over-the-counter medicines, or go online to seek NHS advice at www.nhs.uk.

From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from: 

  • the NHS App which you can download from app stores 

  • the NHS website (from 17 May 2021)

It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.

If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.

This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.

When you're planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is time to get  proof of your vaccination status before you leave.

Care.data - Better information means better care leaflet

GP practices across England will be required to supply patients’ personal and confidential medical information, on a regular and continuous basis, to the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC).

 

The data upload is due to commence in Autumn 2014.

 

Details from your medical record will be extracted from the practice in a form that can identify you, and will include your NHS number, date of birth, postcode, gender and ethnicity, together with your medical diagnoses.

 

Although GP practices cannot object to this information leaving the practice, individual patients and their families can instruct their practice to prohibit the transfer of their data, i.e. you have the right to opt-out.

If you do nothing, i.e. you do not opt out, then your medical information will be extracted and uploaded to the HSCIC.

Once uploaded, you will not be able to get this data deleted by the HSCIC. So if you want to opt out, you need to act now.

 

To opt out, simply fill in your details on the form – see link at the end of this page - cut it out and post it or drop it in to your GP practice, marked for the attention of your GP. If you wish to opt out your children or other members of your family for whom you are responsible, you can add their details on the back of the form.

 

Opt Out form - download, sign and send it to the practice
