What is the census?
The census is a survey that happens every 10 years and gives us a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. All kinds of organisations, from local authorities to charities, use the information to help provide the services we all need, including transport, education and healthcare. Without the census, it would be much more difficult to do this.
When should I fill in my census questionnaire?
Census Day is Sunday 21 March – but you can fill yours in as soon as you get your access code
in the post. Your answers should be about the people who usually live in your household on this date – even if you’re filling it in before then. If your household circumstances change on
Census Day, you can let us know.

Patients will be contacted by the practice to book a vaccine in the order of eligibility. When it is the right time for you to receive the vaccine, you will receive an invitation to come forward. Please do not contact the practice to get an appointment until you are contacted. They are having to respond quickly to updated guidance from NHS England and JCVI and all staff are working extremely hard to roll out the vaccine service whilst maintaining normal services. They thank you for your continued support and patience.
