GDPR

The Practice complies with the General Protection Data Regulations 25th May 2018.

What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulations and is a new piece of legislation that will supersede the Data Protection Act. It will not only apply to the UK and EU; it covers anywhere in the world in which data about EU citizens is processed.

The GDPR is similar to the Data Protection Act (DPA) 1998 (which the practice already complies with), but strengthens many of the DPA’s principles.

Important information regarding your data

Plans/Statement of intent:

Patient Data has now been uploaded to the Summary Care Record unless patients have specifically opted out of this scheme.

Patients can already request prescriptions on line and make appointments on line. Please see Privacy Notices under the heading of Policies.

General Data Protection Regulations: Your Privacy Matters

Your data matters to the NHS. Information about your health and care helps us to improve your individual care, speed up diagnosis, plan your local services and research new treatments. In May 2018, the strict rules about how this data can and cannot be used were strengthened. The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used.

You can choose whether your confidential patient information is used for research and planning.  Your health and care information is used to improve your individual care. It is also used to help us research new treatments, decide where to put GP clinics and plan for the number of doctors and nurses in your local hospital. Wherever possible we try to use data that does not identify you, but sometimes it is necessary to use your confidential patient information.  Confidential patient information identifies you and says something about your health, care or treatment. You would expect this information to be kept private.  Your confidential patient information is sometimes used by the NHS, local authorities, university and hospital researchers, medical colleges and pharmaceutical companies researching new treatments. You can choose to opt out of sharing your confidential patient information for research and planning. There may still be times when your confidential patient information is used: for example, during an epidemic where there might be a risk to you or to other people’s health. You can also still consent to take part in a specific research project.  Choosing to opt out will not affect your care and treatment. You will still be invited for screening services, such as screenings for bowel cancer.  You do not need to do anything if you are happy about how your confidential patient information is used. If you do not want your confidential patient information to be used for research and planning, you can choose to opt out via the Nationa Data Opt-Out Programme (see below).

National Data Opt-Out Programme

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. You can change your choice at any time.
