Opting out of sharing of medical data - deadline
There have been posts on social media with false information about requiring patients to opt out of allowing their data to be shared data with the NHS by a deadline, after which the data can be sold.
This is not correct, the data will not be sold.
Please see attached leaflet by clicking on this link Sharing patient data which explains how patient data is used within the NHS and how you can opt out if you feel that is appropriate for you.
To find out more information and how to register a National Data Opt-Out, please read our GP Data for Planning and Research Transparency Notice

Working together with local practices
We have recently joined with Portishead Medical Group / Harbourside Family Practice / and Heywood Family Practice to work together as Gordano Valley Primary Care Network (PCN).
We have formed this new PCN to help join up health and social care between the four practices and improve our patients’ physical health, mental health and social wellbeing.
We were previously part of Gordano and Mendip PCN but we made the decision to become two PCNs on 1 April 2021 to better serve the needs of our local populations.
Please see front page for the latest details of our vaccination clinics.
