GPDfPR – General Practice Data for Planning and Research

This practice is required to support vital health and care planning and research by sharing your pseudonymised data with NHS Digital.  For more information about this see the GP Practice Privacy Notice for General Practice Data for Planning and Research. You can choose whether your confidential patient information is used for research and planning. You do not need to do anything if you are happy about how your confidential patient information is used. If you would like to Opt out you need to register that wish with your GP surgery by 23/06/2021. You can change your choice at any time.

Type 1 opt-out: medical records held at your GP practice

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. To register a Type 1 Opt-out, for yourself or for a dependent (if you are the parent or legal guardian of the patient) (to Opt-out) you can download the form from the link below and then returning it to the surgery before the deadline of June 23rd 2021. Opt Out Form

This collection will start on 1 July 2021 so if you do not want your data to be shared with NHS Digital.

Type 2 opt-out: information held by NHS Digital

Previously you could tell your GP practice if you did not want NHS Digital, to share confidential patient information that we collect from across the health and care service for purposes other than your individual care. This was called a type 2 opt-out. The type 2 opt-out was replaced by the national data opt-out. Type 2 opt-outs recorded on or before 11 October 2018 have been automatically converted to national data opt-outs.  Read more about the collection and conversion of type 2 opt-outs. More information about this matter can be viewed on the NHS Digital website here

Routine appointments can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance, simply visit or call the surgery, or use our online service.

Our Reception Team will ask for basic information about your symptoms to make sure you’re seen quickly by the most appropriate member of our team.

If you’re not registered to use our online service yet, see ‘Use online services’ below.

Telephone consultations – Some patients don’t need a face-to-face appointment. We offer 5-minute telephone appointments so you can speak to a doctor about your problems quickly and conveniently.

Phone in time – If you’d like to speak with your doctor they’re usually available after their morning surgery. Our receptionist will take your number if the doctor is busy and then you’ll receive a callback later or, occasionally, the following day if there has been a large volume of calls.

Double appointments – Routine doctors appointments are 10 minutes long. For multiple conditions or complex issues, please request a double appointment.

Urgent appointments – Our duty day 7-minute-long appointments are only for urgent issues, not ongoing problems. They can be arranged by calling the surgery from 8am, explaining your symptoms and receiving a callback from our triage nurse who will determine whether you need to be seen on the same day.

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer the slot to someone else.

Park Green Surgery uses an online service called Patient Access. This website and mobile app lets you:

  • View, book and cancel select appointments at our practice
  • Order your repeat prescriptions
  • Access your medical records

To register for our online service, just pop in to the practice with photo ID such as a passport or driving licence, and a utility bill in your name dated within the last 3 months.

For illnesses lasting 7 days or less, you don’t need a sick note but you may need to complete a self-certification form. You can pick one up at our surgery reception or on this website –

For absences of over 7 days, you’ll need medical evidence for your employer. For this, you’ll need a doctor’s Fit Note. Your doctor can also give you a “Fitness For Work” note which helps you get back to work more quickly.

Housebound patients can receive a home visit from a doctor by calling the practice between 8am and 10.30am. You’ll need to give some details about your problem to our receptionist so your doctor can call you to carry out an assessment to determine whether an at-home appointment is appropriate.

Children and babies should be brought into our surgery for appointments. We always make sure that children are seen as quickly as possible.

Your GP may refer you to the community nursing team for home visits, and anyone who has recently had a baby or who is a newly registered patient with a child under 5 will receive a home visit from our health visitor.

To order your repeat prescription you can use your prescription tear-off slip and put it in the requests box on the ground floor of our surgery or order online.

Macclesfield pharmacies also offer a collection and delivery service so you can also give your prescription request to your usual pharmacy.

We don’t take repeat prescription requests over the telephone.

Make sure to leave a minimum of 2 working days to ensure your request is processed in time, and only tick the medications that you need.

Anyone on a repeat prescription will need a regular medication review. When you receive a notification on your tear-off slip, make an appointment immediately to avoid delays in your medication.

When you’ve had a test, you’ll be told how long it’ll take to get the result. Call our surgery after this time if you haven’t heard anything.

Our receptionists can only relay messages from your doctor, they can’t comment on your results. It’s your responsibility to check your test results and make follow-up appointments whenever necessary.

Our data protection and confidentiality policy means we can only give results to the patient themselves without prior permission.

For blood test, x-ray, scans and specimen results, please ring between 2pm and 4pm a full 7 working days later.

If you need medical advice urgently and you feel it cannot wait until our surgery re-opens, call the out-of-hours service on 111.

You can talk to a medical professional to explain your problem and may be given advice or asked to come for an urgent appointment at the out of hours centre.

The service is open:

Monday – Thursday, 6.30pm – 8am
Friday – Monday, 6pm – 8am

Home visits are only made in exceptional circumstances.

We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from the 7th September 2020.

Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.

You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.

Read more about EPS on the NHS website.

In order to reduce unnecessary attendance at healthcare facilities, one of the routine procedures we are suspending during the coronavirus outbreak is routine 3-monthly B12 injections.

All patients on routine 3-monthly B12 injections can safely postpone their next injection until after the COVID-19 social isolation measures have been relaxed, even if this takes six months or more.

This is because patients who have been having regular injections for more than 12 months will have extremely high levels of B12 in their body and have no urgent need to attend NHS centres during this unusual time.

Patients may wish to buy an oral B12 supplement, which are widely available in health shops and online. A suggested oral dose of between 10 (ten) and 50 (fifty) micrograms daily can be taken.

Dr David Morris
On behalf of Park Green Surgery

We charge for some tasks outside of normal NHS medical services.

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GPs working in Park Green Surgery in the 2019/20 financial year was £62,033 before tax and National Insurance.

This is for 4 full time GPs and 7 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.

EU Exit advice for patients

We have heard from many of our patients with questions around their health and care as a consequence of an EU exit. The best source of information can be found on This website will be updated on a regular basis.

Information regarding medicines

Please keep ordering your repeat prescriptions and taking your medicines as normal. It’s very important you don’t order more medicines than normal. If you do, then it may mean that other people won’t be able to get their medicines. Further information is available on
