Freedom of Information Act

The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act was passed in 2000 and replaced the Open Government Code of Practice that has been in place since 1994. The Act gives the public a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities. The Act came into full effect on the 1st January 2005.

The Act places a statutory obligation on all public bodies to publish details of all recorded information that they hold and to allow, with a few exceptions, the general public to have access to this information on request.

The practice recognises the importance of the Act and it will ensure that appropriate systems are put in place to publicise what recorded information is kept by the practice and how this information can be accessed on request by the general public.

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

***IMPORTANT INFORMATION ***

Please can we remind all patients not to contact the surgery regarding the COVID-19 or flu vaccinations for over 50’s.  We still have no further updates regarding the COVID-19 vaccine programme, nor have we been instructed to vaccinate all over 50’s who are not in the at risk category for flu.

We are still offering flu vaccinations, but only to the vulnerable and at risk groups.  If you have been invited for a flu vaccination, please give us a call to ensure you receive one.  It would be helpful if you could let us know if you do not wish to have the vaccination, this could be done through message on your Patient Access, by email or telephone.

The practice is under immense pressure, as you can imagine, so please can we ask that you do not ring the surgery with any enquiries about either of these vaccinations.  Updates will be on social media and our website.

Thank you for co-operation.
