Please note during the Covid-19 Pandemic we need your support to keep our clinicians and support team safe, so we have made the following changes.


Appointments will be carried out over the phone unless there is a clinical need for you to come into the practice. This will help minimise risk of COVID-19 while continuing to ensure people get the care and advice they need.

 

Please do not come to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital if:

You have a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus


During this pandemic we are accepting repeat prescription requests over the phone to reduce the amount of people coming to the surgery. If you need asistance please ring the surgery on 0161 652 6336 or email us at oldccg.roytonmedicalcentre@nhs.net do not visit the surgery. We are trying to keep you and the clinicians Healthy and Safe!

 

We are encouraging all patients to sign up to Patient Access to be able to order repeat medication online. Please speak to one of our Patient Advisors or see the link on the left of the screen.

 

Mind and Walfare Rights will still be working with us during this time, but they will also be doing telephone appointments.

LGBT Covid-19 update

As a result of COVID-19, many LGBT people are at risk of experiencing further discrimination and marginalisation when accessing services or trying to address the health inequalities they face.
 

 

With this in mind, LGBT Foundation has produced briefing sheet highlighting the experiences of LGBT communities, vital information for healthcare professionals and guidance on signposting patients to additional support.


A survey has also been launched for people in the LGBT community to share how the Coronavirus has affected them. This information will be used to add additional evidence to the briefing, and to help inform services and support for LGBT communities during this time. Please share the survey and briefings with all those you think are relevant.

Privacy Notice

 COVID-19 and your information

 

The Information Commissioner recognises the unprecedented challenges the NHS and other health professionals are facing during COVID-19.

 

The ICO (Information Commissioners Office) also recognise that 'Public bodies may require additional collection and sharing of personal data to protect against serious threats to public health.'

 

On 20th March 2020 the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care issued a Notice under Regulation 3(4) of The Health Service (Control of Patient Information) Regulations 2002 requiring organisations such as GP Practices to use your information to help GP Practices and other healthcare organisations to respond to and deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

In order to look after your healthcare needs during this difficult time, we may urgently need to share your personal information, including medical records, with clinical and non-clinical staff who belong to organisations that are permitted to use your information and need to use it to help deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.  This could (amongst other measures) consist of treating you; and enable us and other healthcare organisations to monitor the disease, assess risk and manage the spread of the disease.

 

Please be assured that we will only share information and health data that is necessary to meet yours and public healthcare needs.

 

The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care has also stated that these measures are temporary and will expire on 30th September 2020 unless a further extension is required.

 

Please also note that the data protection and electronic communication laws do not stop us from sending public health messages to you, either by phone, text or email as these messages are not direct marketing.

 

It may also be necessary to use your information and health data to facilitate digital consultations and diagnoses and we will always do this with your security in mind.

 

If you are concerned about how your information is being used, please contact our DPO using mhcc.ig@nhs.net.
