JCVI recommending booster vaccinations for all adults
The NHS is awaiting national guidance that lets us extend the availability of COVID-19 booster jabs to all adults, a minimum of three months after receiving their second jabs. Thank you for your patience while we put this in place. For the time being, please only come for your booster jab if you are over the age of 40, and it has been more than six months since you had your second jab. If this does not apply to you, then an announcement will be made when you can get your booster.

Data Opt Out Information
Patient data from GP medical records kept by GP practices in England is used every day to improve health, care and services through planning and research, helping to find better treatments and improve patient care. The NHS is introducing an improved way to share this information - called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection. NHS Digital has been directed by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to collect and analyse data from GP practices for health and social care purposes including policy, planning, commissioning, public health and research purposes.
If you DO NOT want your identifiable patient data (which will be pseudonymised) to be shared for purposes except for your own care, you can opt-out by registering a Type 1 Opt-out or a National Data Opt-Out, or both. These opt-outs are different and they are explained in more detail on the link below
The collection of data will start on 1st September, 2021. If you DO NOT want your data to be shared with NHS Digital please complete the Type 1 Opt Out Form and forward it to the Practice.
Paper forms are available at the Practice if you do not have access to a computer to process your request on-line.

GP Training and Teaching
As an approved specialist GP training practice, we have a number of GP trainees working within the practice at any one time. All of our GP trainees are fully qualified doctors who have previously worked as hospital doctors and are undergoing part of their specialty general practice training. We also supervise F2 grade doctors who are rotating through posts at the Royal Free and doctors undergoing specialist training in musculoskeletal medicine. All of our trainees are supervised by one of the senior doctors at the practice. From time to time another doctor may sit in with the trainee as an observer for educational purposes.
HGP works with UCL in the training of medical students. We also support the training of physician associates and nurses. This means we regularly have medical and other healthcare professional students seconded to the practice as part of their studies. Students sometimes sit in with doctors or other members of staff to observe and take part in consultations. If a medical student is with your doctor you will be informed. We very much hope you will participate in the student teaching programme but understand that on some occasions you would rather not have a student present. Please let us know if that is what you would prefer.
