The current NHS Digital (NHSD) extract of GP data for Research purposes (known as the GPDPR) has been delayed due to NHSD wishing to review the way in which this data will be collected, to conduct more public involvement and information about the plans and change the way in which patients can opt out of the extract of their GP data.

Currently the only way to opt out is to complete a Type 1 opt out form and return this to the practice by the 1st September.  However, this extract will not be taken until the NHSD have changed the way it will take the data and respect the patient’s choice for using their data.  NHSD are introducing the following changes to the opt out process which will mean that patients will be able to change their opt-out status at any time::-

  • Patients do not need to register a Type 1 opt-out by 1st September to ensure their GP data will not be uploaded.
  • NHS Digital will create the technical means to allow GP data that has previously been uploaded to the system via the GPDPR collection to be deleted when someone registers a Type 1 opt-out.

 The plan to retire Type 1 opt-outs will be deferred for at least 12 months while we get the new arrangements up and running and will not be implemented without consultation with the RCGP, the BMA and the National Data Guardian. 

This means that you can opt out at any time in the future and NHSD will delete data that they already have taken for research purposes, the deadline of the 01/09/2020 has been delayed until a new system of opt out is developed.  Hopefully, this will be a simple centralised approach via the NHS app or NHS website to avoid paper form and administration work for your GP.

We will update you when we know more about the NHSD plans to change how you can control who has access to your data.


Masks and social distancing rules will remain mandatory in all healthcare settings beyond 19 July, NHS England has confirmed.

Public Health England’s (PHE) infection prevention control guidelines and hospital visiting guidance are set to remain in place for staff and visitors, even as restrictions are eased elsewhere. Please see link below.

Please note from the 1st June we no longer accept prescription requests over the phone, you can either post your request through the letter box outside the surgery or order online. If you do not have access to your online account please call reception and we will be more than happy to get this set up for you.

Major Oak Medical Practice

GP Training

Training Practice

Our practice has been accredited as being suitable for the training of doctors who wish to become general practitioners (GP's).

This means that our practice and doctors have had to achieve a number of standards which have been assessed by the Health Education England.

These are some points for your information:

Those doctors training to become GPs are called GP Registrars. They are hosted by the practice to support their training.

GP Registrar's are fully qualified doctors who have a lot of experience of hospital medicine.

If you are seeing a Registrar, you can expect to receive the quality of service you would get from your own GP. If you have any concerns, please speak to the Practice Manager.

In order for the Registrars to successfully complete their training, they need to be assessed on their consulting skills. This is done by the appointed assessors viewing a video of the registrars’ consultations. Your consent to have the consultation with a GP specialist Trainee recorded is always requested before the consultation and you will be asked to sign a consent form on arrival at the practice. This is in keeping with the rules set for obtaining consent for any patients to be seen by doctors in training as required by The General Medical Council. You are under no obligation to have your consultation videoed and not wishing to do so will have no effect on your care. If the doctor appears to be recording your consultation and you have not signed a consent form, you should indicate this to him or her immediately. You can withdraw your consent at any time. The recording will be used for educational purposes only.

To ensure that the practice continues to meet the standards of training, both the practice and the GP trainers are subject to regular inspection visits. At this inspection another doctor will assess the quality of the patient records. If you do not want your own record to be available for inspection, then please inform the practice of your wishes, and they will be respected. Please ask any member of the reception staff if further information is needed.

In addition to training Registrars, the surgery also occasionally provides training to medical students. These students may be present at your consultation, but only with your permission. If you do not wish the student to be present, please advise the GP.

We currently have one GP specialist Trainee.

Dr Gopi is the GP Trainer

Dr Mikhail is the Clinical Supervisor
