Noticeboard

We are trying to ensure that patients see the correct clinician for their medical need, therefore, we may need to ask you the reason for your request for an appointment. If you prefer not to say, your wishes will be respected.


Data Sharing

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.

Covid Restriction Update:

 

Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward. 

 

From the 19th July nothing will change at the surgery - patients will need to still wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE.  We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people.  

 

In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-covid (face to face, by phone, by e consult and by video), not counting vaccinating 90% of the adult population twice in the last 6 months. 

 

Millview Surgery has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe for ALL patients as we can. 


Latest News

COVID 19 has not gone away and Millview Surgery as a Practice will continue to do everything we can to keep all our patients and staff safe.

We have been open and safely seeing patients who need to be seen since the Covid pandemic began.

We are continuing to provide services, prioritising delivering care based on clinical needs.

When you phone the Surgery, you will be asked to provide some information about your healthcare need, and a phone call will be arranged with a Clinician.  Face to face appointments are available to all patients when necessary, and these will be assessed by the GP when they phone you.

One of the challenges we face is the limited space we have in the waiting room to comply with social distancing rules.  We are currently working out how to increase the number of face to face appointments further, whilst also keeping everyone safe. 

It is REALLY important that those coming into Practice continue to follow the COVID rules.  If you have a temperature, cough,  cold, loss of taste or smell DO NOT COME TO SURGERY.  Please ring 119 to arrange a Covid test.  Please also note that whilst having the vaccine does give you very good protection, there is still a risk of catching COVID and passing it on to other people.

We thank everyone for their understanding and in helping us to keep everyone safe.

Face Masks

We would just like to remind patients that we request you wear a mask when coming into the surgery.  If you feel you are exempt and cannot wear one, you will be asked to wait outside until the clinician you are seeing is ready to see you.  This is to protect other patients and staff.

If you want to wait inside and wear a visor, please inform reception and we will be able to issue you with a visor.


The Covid-19 vaccination programme has begun. When it is your turn to be vaccinated, the NHS will contact you. Please do not contact the NHS.

 In Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, a few different health and care organisations including hospitals, GP practices, care homes and others are working together on the Covid-19 vaccination programme. This means when it is your turn to be vaccinated, this may not be at your GP practice. You will be told where to go for your appointment and how to book.

 In line with expert guidance, the first priority for vaccination is care homes residents and staff, people over the age of 80 and frontline health and care workers.

 We understand a lot of people want to be vaccinated and would like to reassure you this will happen. Please be patient and wait to be contacted.

 For further information on why you are being asked to wait for your Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information on the GOV.UK website or this leaflet.

New national restrictions from 5 November -Protecting people more at risk from coronavirus.

Sick notes are not needed for previous shielded patients or anyone new who is wishing to work from home. This is not a medical issue. The new rules say that if you CAN work from home you should be doing that anyway. Please contact your employer to arrange occupational health advice if needed.

■ Don’t just miss your GP appointment – tell them you’re not coming, preferably at  

  least 24 hours in advance

■Don’t just tick the box for repeat prescriptions - only order what you need

■A&E is for emergencies only - if it’s not an emergency, please try your local

 Pharmacy, GP, Urgent Care Centre or call 111 for advice and out-of-hours GPs
