Just to keep everyone up to date with where we are with are Covid Vaccinations
We are now two thirds of the way through our eligible patients (cohorts 1-9), with an increasing amount of vaccinations being picked up by the mass vaccination sites
We are at present on Cohort 6 and expecting to finish this cohort within the next two weeks – this has been a very tricky cohort to manage with frequent changes of criteria which has moved people in and out of the cohort, sometimes on the same day.
We understand that Cohort 7 (60-64 year olds) is now being seen at mass vaccination centres – so if you can get jabbed sooner at one of these sites, we urge you to take this up. However, we will be here, to vaccinate anyone who cannot or does not wish to travel.
We continue to ask everyone to be patient. We allocate all our vaccine immediately it arrives to ensure our patients get vaccinated as soon as possible but we are very dependent on the amount that we are sent (which has been quite small recently)
Our inner boundary has been extended to include several more villages including the whole of Middleton Cheney and Byfield. Our postcode finder has yet to catch up
If you wish to send in a photograph to the surgery, please call the surgery first and we will arrange a simple IT fix which allows you to send the photograph direct into your medical notes.

Cropredy Surgery aims to provide the highest quality, holistic, patient-centred healthcare delivered with respect, compassion and understanding.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Protecting your confidentiality - How we use your information
Under the Data Protection Act Cropredy surgery is required to process personal data fairly and lawfully. The methods by which these processes are governed and explained to patients are known as ‘fair processing’.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) ‘right to be informed’ encompasses the obligation to provide fair processing information, typically through a privacy notice.
Fair processing includes:
Telling patients about what type of information we will collect, how we intend to use it and who we may share it with
Providing assurance to patients that their data will be safe, confidential and used appropriately if they share it with you
Enabling patients to opt out of sharing their data and making them aware of their rights
National data opt out
National data opt out provides a facility for individuals to opt-out from the use of their data for research or planning purposes. This replaces the previous ‘type 2’ opt-out, which required NHS Digital to refrain from sharing a patient’s confidential patient information for purposes beyond their direct care. Any person with an existing type 2 opt-out will have it automatically converted to a national data opt-out from 25 May 2018.
The national data opt-out choice is set by the individual and does not require any action by the person’s General Practice.
People will be able to set an opt out online, through a supported telephone service or by submitting a paper request.

Text Messaging - Appointment Reminders
We have introduced an additional service to help you remember your appointment. You will now receive an appointment reminder by text to your mobile phone the day before your appointment, with the exception of Monday appointments where the reminder will be sent on a Friday. To ensure you receive a text message please check the number we hold with our receptionists. Should you not want to receive a reminder by text please advise our receptionists and they will ensure this is recorded. You can also cancel your appointment by replying with CANCEL when you receive your text reminder.
Our dedicated team is here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription, cancel an appointment or view your electronic records.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Access & Parking
Cropredy Surgery is a semi-rural, dispensing practice housed in a building constructed in 2001 with suitable disabled facilities.
