ECCLESFIELD GROUP PRACTICE - IMPORTANT UPDATES

 

COVID-19 Vaccination update

Following extensive trials, the first safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine has been approved in the UK and is now available to priority groups.  

Vaccinations are being delivered according to priority groups  identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).  The vaccinations may not take place at your practice, but rather a local vaccination service (led by GPs, practices nurses and community pharmacists) who are responsible for delivering the vaccine to people in your community. 

When it is the right time for you to receive your vaccination, you will receive an invitation to come forward.  This may be via the phone, or through a letter either from your GP or the National Booking System. 

We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but we are asking people not to contact the practice to get an appointment as you will not be able to get one until you are contacted.

UPDATE (June 2021): Drop in clinics are available now at the Crucible Sheffield and Duke Street - see 'news' tab for more information. 


GP DATA FOR PLANNING AND RESEARCH (GPDPR) 

Data Opt Out Information

You may be aware of a new NHS Digital initiative https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/data-collections-and-data-sets/data-collections/general-practice-data-for-planning-and-research  to extract information from GP records for research and other purposes. Patients might want to opt out of this data collection and there are 2 different requirements to opt out:

  1. Type 1 data opt out - Urgent action required as the opt out window closes on 23 June 2021
  1. Type 2 data opt out - No time limit

This is to protect non-GP data held on your system, e.g. hospital or clinic treatment.
