General Practice Data for Research and Planning (GPDPR)

Dear Globe Town Patients

You may (or may not) be aware that the current data extraction that takes place from our GP system is going to be replaced with a new system called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) under legal legislation (General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) – NHS Digital). 

The BMA has today called for the Government to delay the first collection by NHS Digital’s new patient data extraction system, to allow practices and patients to gain a better understanding of what the programme entails, and give those patients who wish to opt-out the time to do so.

More details on how patients can opt-out are here.

The full BMA press statement is here.

At Globe Town Surgery we feel that as a practice we have not adequately informed our patients due to not being fully informed ourselves or supported in terms of what to expect and what and how we need to inform our patient of how such changes may affect them. 

Therefore Globe Town Surgery would like to reassure our patients that we take your privacy and confidentiality very seriously and inform you that we will not be switching this on until we have given you enough time to consider the changes and opt out if you decide to do so.


Covid-19 vaccines 

We urge everyone aged 40 and above who has not yet had their first vaccine to book on the national booking system or wait to get a text or letter to book at alternative sites. Anyone over 60 or who is clinical vulnerable (moderate risk) can book on the national site or call their GP. 

If you have had your first vaccine, please make sure you have the second vaccine to ensure maximum protection. If you don’t hear about your second vaccination and it is more than 77 days since your first vaccine, there’s information on how to get your second dose. 

There is comprehensive information, guidance, and answers to questions, including vaccination information for frontline health and social care staff and carers at COVID-19 Vaccination programme | East London Health & Care Partnership (eastlondonhcp.nhs.uk)
