Please see the COVID-19 Section for up-to-date information regarding the Covid-19 Vaccination programme and further details.
We are aware that the Government has advised after 19th July it will no longer be mandatory to wear face masks. For the time being there will be no changes here at the practice. Patients coming to the surgery will still be asked to wear a face mask and use hand sanitiser. Our staff will still continue to wear appropriate PPE. We need to ensure the safety of our team and patients to maintain a functioning service. We hope you will understand why we feel the need to continue these measures and keep the surgery safe for everyone.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
We want to hear people’s views about mental and physical health services for veterans in England
NHS England and NHS Improvement has launched a survey to find out people’s views and experiences of veterans mental and physical health services. The information gathered will be used to help inform the development and provision of these services in the future. As part of this exercise, we would particularly like to hear people’s views and experiences of Op COURAGE: The Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Service, as well as the Veterans Trauma Network (VTN), which is for Service-related physical health conditions.
Op COURAGE: The Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Service is the collective name for the:
• Veterans Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service (TILS).
• Veterans Mental Health Complex Treatment Service (CTS).
• Veterans Mental Health High Intensity Service (HIS).

General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR)
NHS Digital’s daily collection of GP data will support vital health and care planning and research.
You may have read in the press about "General Practice Data for Planning and Research" (GPDPR). This is a new way that NHS Digital will collect data from the GP record to help plan for future NHS healthcare. The new way of collecting patients data reduces the amount of work GP practices have to share the information.
Any data collected will be pseudonymised (meaning it can't be identified with an individual).There are two types of opt out to consider.
TYPE 1 - this stops any data going from the practice to NHS Digital.
NATIONAL DATA - this will allow the data to be shared with NHS Digital, but stops any data going further than that.
Remember in both instances, the data isn't identifiable to you.
Please note this has now been postponed to the 1st September, so it gives you more time to consider your options.
For information on how we share data, please see Data Policy on our website https://www.uptondoctors.co.uk/info.aspx?p=20
To opt out, you must complete the required opt out form and return it to the surgery –
- Either by dropping off a signed paper copy at the surgery
- Email us a photo of the signed form to email@example.com
A copy of the Type 1 opt out can be downloaded here:
