Hospitals in Greater Manchester are starting to resume non-urgent surgery and appointments.
If your appointment or surgery was recently postponed, please wait to hear from the hospital when they are able to reschedule you. There is no need to contact the hospital or your GP practice for this information.
At the beginning of January, the difficult decision was made to pause non-urgent surgery and appointments due to the impact of COVID-19 and the associated staff absence levels.
Although services remain busy, the situation has improved to the point where hospitals can start to resume non-urgent surgery.
Hospitals will initially start with day case surgery, which is where patients don’t need an overnight stay in hospital after their procedure. As the situation continues to improve over the coming weeks other types of surgery will resume as soon as they are able to.
The hospital team will contact patients directly when they can offer a new date for the appointment or surgery.
We appreciate how disappointing this will have been for patients affected by this over the past few weeks, especially for those who had already waited some time. Our local hospitals are working hard to resume services as quickly as possible so please bear with them.
In the meantime, patients waiting can visit the Greater Manchester While You Wait website (whileyouwait.org.uk) which has some information and advice on how to manage physical and mental wellbeing during this time.
Important information re General Practice Data for Planning and Research
The government has decided it will collect, process, analyse and disseminate your GP data for Planning and Research Direction 2021. From July 1st 2021, the patient data will be extracted from GP systems on a daily basis; data will be encrypted and pseudonymised. As this is a statutory obligation, practices are legally obliged to share this data. Click here to learn more about what the government says.
You do not need to do anything if you are happy for your data to be shared in this manner.
If you as a patient want to opt out of your data being shared, apart from information used for your direct care, you have the option of registering a Type 1 Opt-out or a National Opt-out or both.
If you wish to register your opt out choice, please use the following link:
Make your choice about sharing data from your health records - NHS (www.nhs.uk)
If you do not have access to a computer / printer then you can request for the form to be sent to you by phoning 0300 303 5678 between Friday 9am to 5pm (excluding bank holidays). You must send this letter by 23rd June 2021 to ensure no data is uploaded from your records.
Please do NOT phone the surgery if you have further questions as we wish to keep the phonelines open for patients needing direct care. Further information including Frequently asked questions are available below.
In line with recent government recommendations, it is still mandatory to wear a face covering in health care settings and we expect all patients entering our building to wear a face covering.
Our entire practice team will be doing the same.
Face coverings protect *other people* from droplets that you may release into the air, they do not protect you unless everyone wears them.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding
