Welcome to Nutwood Medical Practice
We have now begun our second round of vaccinations at Nutwood. We are a hub for the South Lakes region, hosting patients from six GP practices. We are currently doing very few first vaccinations at the Practice - please contact the Covid helpline on 119 or click on the link below to enquire about first vaccinations in the wider community.
We will let you know when it is your turn to book your second vaccination. Please don’t contact the practice to seek a vaccine, we will contact you.
In the meantime, you can get information about the Covid-19 vaccination online at NHS.uk Coronavirus Vaccination
Please wear a face covering if you are coming to the practice. Only attend if you have an appointment or are collecting or dropping off paperwork, samples etc.
Dissent from secondary use of patient identifiable data
The national data opt-out was introduced on 25 May 2018, enabling patients to opt out from the use of their data for research or planning purposes, in line with the recommendations of the National Data Guardian in her Review of Data Security, Consent and Opt-Outs.
Patients can view or change their national data opt-out choice at any time by using the online service at https://digital.nhs.uk/services/national-data-opt-out or by calling 0300 3035678. You can also download a form here or collect a form from the surgery to complete.
By 30 September 2021 all health and care organisations are required to be compliant with the national data opt-out policy.
