Easter Bank Holiday

Mask

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.

Patient information

If you have been diagnosed with coeliac disease then it’s important to talk to your doctor about what this means. Ask him or her to refer you to a Registered Dietitian for advice on what you can and can’t eat. Information to help you learn more about how best to manage your diet and health is also available on NHS Choices website and the Coeliac UK website

www.nhs.uk/conditions/coeliac-disease and https://www.coeliac.org.uk/home/

This policy applies to all patients. However, special cases will be considered on an individual patient basis. Where a patient’s GP considers that a patient would receive additional benefit from NHS treatment when compared to other patients with the same clinical condition, they will be able to refer into a central CCG panel for the case to be considered.

Any queries about this policy should be directed to the CCGs Patient Engagement Team on 0800 028 3693; email NSHCCG.Pet-North@nhs.net or in writing to Patient Experience Team, NHS Newark and Sherwood Clinical Commissioning Group, Balderton Primary Care Centre, Lowfield Lane, Balderton, Nottinghamshire NG24 3HJ.
