A new national data opt-out model launched in May 2018 to provide an online facility of individuals to opt out from the use of their confidential data for purposes such as research and health service planning.
Patients can set their opt-out preferences at https://www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters/ You will need your NHS number and a valid email address or telephone number.
Patients who are unable to use the online facility can use a phone helpline to manage their choice –0300 303 5678. A paper print-and-post form is also available at https://www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters/manage-your-choice/other-ways-to-manage-your-choice/
A recent survey found that almost a third of GPs already employ a pharmacist in their practice and a further 16% are considering this move. The Village Practice is now part of the national NHS pilot to include a clinical pharmacist in our GP practice. The pharmacist will offer patient appointments for long-term conditions such as diabetes or asthma, medicines reviews and other medicines-related support, including discussing side effects. The pharmacist can also help patients with their medicines following a stay in hospital. Having a pharmacist working at our surgery will increase the available appointments, ease the workload of GPs and provide valuable medicines support”

Our Quick Access Clinic is one of the busiest clinics in the Practice and we are very proud to offer this exceptional access for our patients.
In recent months the clinic has been extremely busy and we have been forced to call Doctors in from their annual leave to try and help us manage the numbers of patients and we are pleased to say we have never turned a patient away. However this is not sustainable, and for the safety of patients and our staff we are implementing a policy to ‘cap’ the number of patients attending the clinic if numbers become unmanageable.
Please be aware we do not take this decision lightly and will only put these measures in place if completely necessary.
If this happens patients will be

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. It covers issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
The following is a list of items and medicines that we think should be a part of every family's first aid kit:
Keep all medicines in a secure locked place out of the reach of small children. Always read the instructions and use the recommended dose. Watch the expiry dates and do not keep medicines beyond this. Take unwanted or out of date medicines back to the pharmacy for safe disposal. Antibiotics cure serious diseases, not cold coughs and wheezes - save them for when it's really necessary.
Those who are homeless, vulnerably housed or ‘of no fixed abode’, asylum seekers, refugees and overseas visitors, whether lawfully in the UK or not, are eligible to register with a GP practice even if they have to pay for NHS services outside of the GP practice.
Homeless patients are entitled to register with a GP using a temporary address which may be a friend's address or a day centre. The practice may also use the practice address to register them. You do not need proof of address or ID.
