Hayfever Season is coming...
The summer is upon us and so is hayfever season. For anyone who suffers with hayfever you are now able to purchase a wide variety of hayfever treatments over the counter or at your local pharmacy.
As a practice we do not prescribe for hayfever! So please do not request tablets, nasal sprays or eye drops.
For more information on hayfever please see the links below;
NHS use of patient data
NHS England is commissioning a modern data service from the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). Under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, NHS England has the power to direct HSCIC to collect information from all providers of NHS care, including general practices. Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. This information about you helps the NHS to provide better care for you.
NHS England have asked us to inform you that this is happening and to make you aware of the choices you have. Further information can be found in the attached leaflet.HSCIC_patient_information_leaflet.pdf
If you have any questions, please contact a member of the reception team.
