Noticeboard

Non Attendances

Unfortunately we had a total of 47 missed appointments in January 2024 which has resulted in 12.4 hours of wasted appointment time. Missed appointments cause the waiting times for an appointment to be much longer than necessary. 

Patients will be removed from the practice list if they continue to miss appointments. 

You can cancel your appointments by phone, text, email or by using your online services app.

National data opt-out

The national data opt-out was introduced on 25 May 2018, enabling patients to opt out from the use of their data for research or planning purposes, in line with the recommendations of the National Data Guardian in her Review of Data Security, Consent and Opt-Outs

Patients can view or change their national data opt-out choice at any time by using the online service at www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters or by calling 0300 3035678.

By 2020 all health and care organisations are required to be compliant with the national data opt-out policy. NHS Digital and Public Health England are already compliant and are applying national data opt-outs. 

Cancer Awareness

When cancer is found at an early stage, treatment is often easier and more likely to be successful. So finding cancer sooner rather than later can make a real difference.

Cancer Research UK has created an online tool to spot
signs and symptoms of cancer. 
https://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer/cancer-symptoms

 If you notice any of these symptoms, it doesn't mean you definitely have cancer, but it does mean you should get checked out by your doctor. If it is something serious, spotting it at an early stage can make all the difference.

As well as knowing what to look out for, knowing what is normal for you and your body is important. If you do, it'll be easier to notice when something's different.
