Something that has been highlighted by COVID-19 is the importance of knowing our patient’s ethnicity, so that appropriate information and clinical support can be provided to the right patient group.
This information is asked for as part of your medical records when you first register. However, to ensure our records are up to date we are going to be contacting patients to update their ethnicity from one of the groups below.
Please note this refers to your immediate ethnicity not where you were born.
If you have received a text from us asking for you to confirm your ethnicity, please respond by texting back the letters associated with your ethnicity group, e.g. wi for White-Irish or ab for Asian-Bangladeshi. This will then be updated on your medical record.
