How we keep your personal information safe and secure,

We understand how important it is to keep your personal information safe and secure and we take this very seriously. We have taken steps to make sure your personal information is looked after in the best possible way.  We review our procedures regularly.

As data controllers, GPs have fair processing responsibilities under the UK GDPR/Data Protection Act 2018. This means ensuring that your personal confidential data (PCD) is handled in ways that are safe, transparent and what you would reasonably expect.

Please read our Privacy Poster and Privacy Policy carefully, as it contains important information about how we use the personal and healthcare information we collect on your behalf.
