GPDPR Opt-Out

From 1st July 2021, the NHS will change how it shares your GP medical record.  The General Practice Data for Planning and Research data extract by NHS Digital from GP practices across England will help the NHS to improve health and care services for everyone, by collecting patient data and holding it in a central national database.  This is an upgrade to an existing similar process called GPES - General Practice Extract Service.  This new data collection will be more efficient, effective, and much more frequent.

For example, patient data held in this new national database can help the NHS to:

  • monitor the long-term safety and effectiveness of care,
  • plan how to deliver better health and care services,
  • prevent the spread of infectious diseases,
  • identify new treatments and medicines through health research.

If you would NOT like your GP data shared with NHS Digital using GPDPR, you need to register an opt-out with your GP practice, before 23rd June 2021.  

Visit https://www.digitalhealthcoachuk.net/gpdpr for more information to help you decide, and download an Opt-Out form.  If you would prefer to email the surgery to request to opt-out, please email beauchamphouseadmin@nhs.net

Accessing GP Services

Since March 2020 the way patients access GP practices has changed significantly.  We are working harder than ever to treat as many patients as possible whilst keeping everyone safe.  All patients who need to contact a GP will be given a GP telephone appointment initially.  You may be asked to send in photos if your concern relates to a rash/lump/bump.  Your GP will view the photo as part of your appointment.  You may also be offered a video call.  A large number of patients can be treated this way without needing to come in to the GP surgery at all.  If your GP feels that they need to see you, they will book you a face to face appointment.

Request for contact details

  •      IT IS VITAL WE ARE ABLE TO CONTACT OUR PATIENTS IN A TIMELY AND EFFICIENT MANNERWe continue to fully respect our patients confidentiality but if you are willing to be contacted via SMS text message or EMAIL please inform any of our staff when you speak to us.

Other Surgery Services:

  •       Our home visit policy remains unchanged. Patients will only be visited in their home if they are known to be housebound. Patients requesting a home visit will be contacted by a GP via telephone before a visit is confirmed.
  •        Our prescribing policies remain unchanged. Telephone requests for medication are not accepted. We encourage you to download the NHS app, use SystmOne online if you have password access, or make a request in writing. We WILL NOT issue more than a two month supply of any medications under any circumstances.  Stockpiling of medication is unacceptable.  Medication will not be issued when there is not a clinical indication e.g. inhalers. GPs and our prescribing clerks are working to ensure that repeat medications are up dated without delay but please bear with us at this time of high demand.

We thank our patients for their understanding during this period of uncertainty, and our staff for their continued dedication and hard work in caring for our patients.
