Patient Survey During COVID-19
NHS Wakefield CCG want your views on services provided by your GP practice during COVID-19
NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for designing local health services. We work with GP practices across Wakefield District.
We are asking patients to tell us about their experience of using the services during COVID-19. We are doing this with all practices across Wakefield District.
We would like you to complete our survey, which is available online at
https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/seeingGPinWF or in paper copy from the practice. Please complete this by 14 August.
Paper copy of the survey can be sent back to us to FREEPOST NHS WAKEFIELD CCG, White Rose House, West Parade, Wakefield, West Yorkshire WF1 1LT. You don’t need a stamp to post it.
All information will come back to the CCG and we will analyse the responses. All replies are strictly confidential and not linked to your care at the practice.
If you need help completing the survey, please contact: 01924 315746 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks in advance.

Face coverings when accessing GP practices
We are asking all our patients to wear a face covering or something else that can cover the mouth and nose, such as a scarf, if you come to the surgery for an appointment.
The government is asking people not to buy medical grade masks so they can be saved for frontline health and care workers, and instead make their own face coverings at home.
You can use a simple scarf or bandana that ties behind your head or make your own ‘no-sew’ face coverings using the advice available online at the gov.uk website. Simply search for ‘face covering’. Face coverings are also available to buy in shops or online.
Face coverings should not be worn by children under three and people who would find wearing them difficult (such as people with breathing difficulties).
Clinicians that are seeing patients face-to-face will be wearing personal protective equipment (face mask/gloves/aprons). This is for your safety as well as theirs.
Further advice about wearing face coverings in enclosed spaces can be found here www.gov.uk/government/news/public-advised-to-cover-faces-in-enclosed-spaces

Risk profiling: how your NHS records are used
This practice is taking part in a new NHS service that helps your family doctor (GP) to spot whetheryou need more help to manage your health. The service is called “risk profiling”.
Using information from your health records, a secure NHS computer system will look at any recent treatments you have had in hospital or at this surgery, and any existing health conditions that you have, and alert your doctor to the likelihood of a possible future hospital admission. The clinical Risk Stratification in General Practice team at the surgery will use the information to help you get early care and treatment where it is needed.
The information will be seen only by qualified health workers involved in your care. NHS security systems will protect your health information and patient confidentiality at all times.
If you don’t want your information being used in this way, or have any other concerns, please contact the surgery on 01924 220256 and explain your preference to any of the reception team.
