What is shielding?
Shielding is a measure to protect extremely vulnerable people by minimising interaction between those who are extremely vulnerable and others. This means that those who are extremely vulnerable should not leave their homes, and within their homes should minimise all non-essential contact with other members of their household. This is to protect those who are at very high risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19) from coming into contact with the virus.
If you think you have a condition which makes you extremely vulnerable or have received a letter from NHS England you are strongly advised to shield yourself, to reduce the chance of getting coronavirus (COVID-19) and follow the face-to-face distancing measures below.
The measures are:
Do use telephone or online services to contact your GP or other essential services.
We know that stopping these activities will be difficult. You should try to identify ways of staying in touch with others and participating in your normal activities remotely from your home. However, you must not participate in alternative activities if they involve any contact with other people.
This advice will be in place for at least 12 weeks from the day you receive your letter.
What do we mean by extremely vulnerable?
People falling into this extremely vulnerable group include:

Request for medical certification from absence of work related to the Covid-19 pandemic
We are unable to issue individual fit notes due to excessive workload . Please download the letter to employers below and fill in as appropriate.
Covid-19:From 16.03.2020 , we have moved to telephone-first model to protect our patients
We urge patients to self care for coughs, cold and flu like illnesses. Self help advice can be found on the nhs / 111 website.
Patients with relevant travel history or contact with confirmed cases of covid-19 should use the 111 website to triage their case or call 111. They should not approach the surgery.
Online appointment booking will be for telephone appointments only. This is a short term measure and we hope to get back to normal face to face appointment booking as soon as it is possible.
Patients will be offered online, email and telephone appointments rather than face to face appointments where possible.When absolutely necessary a doctor will arrange a face to face appointment.
Patients will be asked screening questions for all face to face appointment bookings. Please respond truthfully and accurately.
Please bear with us and we apologise for any inconvenience.
Coronavirus ( Covid-19)
What to do if you have symptoms
Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
if you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.
Do not go to GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You still need to stay at home when you finish self-isolating, but you can go out for essential trips such as buying food.
Staying at home can help stop coronavirus spreading
You’ll need to stay at home if you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) or live with someone who does.
Staying at home means you should:
You can use your garden, if you have one. You can also leave the house to exercise – but stay at least 2 metres away from other people
You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
We will not be testing people who are self-isolating with mild symptoms.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a Europe-wide law that replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK. It is part of the wider package of reform to the data protection landscape that includes the Data Protection Bill. The GDPR sets out requirements for how organisations need to handle personal data from 25 May 2018.
The GDPR was designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe. The aim is to protect citizens from privacy and data breaches.The current Data Protection Act dates from the 1990s when organisations held much less data on individuals. As the amount of data held has increased and technology has advanced, so has the risk of data breaches. The GDPR aims to address gaps in previous legislation.The key principles of the Data Protection Act 1998 remain unchanged, but some areas of legislation have been strengthened.
Like the Data Protection Act 1998 , the GDPR applies to ‘controllers’ and ‘processors’ of data – a controller says how and why personal data is processed and the processor acts on the controller’s behalf. General Practices are data controllers. Church Road Surgery has always shown absolute commitment for data protection and will continue to do so by strictly adhering to new regulations.
