New Building.

 

We have moved in to our lovely new building and so are now back on Burvill Street. We are delighted with our new building but please bear with us whilst we get things sorted.

As many of you are aware we have sold the Cottage Hospital building to Mr Pelham Reilly and he has been very supportive and helpful to us in our plans.

We are delighted to say that following our negotiations with SWAST that the paramedic and his car will be remaining with us in our new building.

 

Please keep an eye on the website for further details and we will be announcing the official opening date soon.

 

 

Registration letters from NHS England – please respond if you get one

 

The NHS is carrying out work in Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly to make sure the patient details on GP lists are accurate.  Letters are being sent to some patients, but not all.

 

If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit any changes. Changes can be made by returning the form in the prepaid envelope. If the details are correct, you can confirm by freepost, by freephone, via text message or online.

 

It is important to respond to the letter, as GP lists do get out of date over time. If we don’t have an accurate record of your name and address, then we or a hospital may not be able to contact you with important information.

 

We may also need to contact you:

 

·          with test results

·          to invite you for bowel, breast or cervical screening to protect against cancer, for example

·          to offer vaccination against infectious diseases such as flu or measles, mumps and rubella

·          to give you an appointment as part of your plan to stay healthy if you have a long-term illness

 

Please respond to the letter within four weeks, so the NHS can be certain about your details. Otherwise, the NHS will assume that you have moved away, and begin the process to remove you from the practice list.

Important Information

We will soon be required to supply your personal and confidential medical information to the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). This information will be taken from the practice in a form that can identify you.

The Practice has NO choice but to allow HSCIC to extract this information.

However, individual patients can instruct their Practice to stop the transfer of their data. For more information on the reasons for this data extract and how to opt out of sending your confidential information ask the Receptionist for a leaflet.
