Updated guidelines when attending the practice
Face coverings required in practice
Public health guidance remains in place suggesting individuals should continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
With current case rates in South Yorkshire remaining high the Directors of Public Health for Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield are advising that well fitted and correctly worn face masks have made a difference to transmission rates through the course of the pandemic and are therefore encouraging people to continue to wear them.
You will still be required to wear a face covering when using NHS services. We ask that patients continue to wear face coverings when visiting our practice. Hand sanitiser is also available for you to use whilst in practice and we ask that you continue to maintain a safe distance from other patients whilst in the waiting room.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Type 1 Opt Out Preference
The data held in your GP medical records is shared with other healthcare professionals for the purposes of your individual care. It is also shared with other organisations to support health and care planning and research.
If you do not want your personally identifiable patient data to be shared outside of your GP practice for purposes except your own care, you can register an opt-out with your GP practice. This is known as a Type 1 Opt-out.
Please follow this link for further information and there is a link within it that allows you to opt out yourself:
You can also visit reception who can provide you with an opt-out form and your records will be coded accordingly.
