Please be aware, from 1 September, 2021, patient data will be extracted from GP records to support health and care planning and research in England; this national initiative is known as General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR). The aim of this is to help find better treatments and improve patient outcomes for everyone. However, we recognise that you may wish to opt-out of having your information shared and additional information on how to do so is available here.

We are working hard to reduce this waiting time and will keep you updated as to when you are likely to receive a full response.
Our telephone lines are open and our staff are here to offer advice and support if you have a concern or complaint. We can also signpost you to other services for support during this difficult time.
