Privacy Policy

General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATIONS
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) is a new law that determines how your personal data is processed and kept safe, and the legal rights that you have in relation to your own data.

The regulation applies from 25th May 2018, and will apply even after the UK leaves the EU.

What GDPR means for patients:

The GDPR sets out the key principles about processing personal data for patients:

Data must be processed lawfully, fairly and transparently
It must be collected for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes
It must be limited to what is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed
Information must be accurate and kept up to date
Data must be stored securely
It can be retained for as long as is necessary for the reasons it was collected
There are also stronger rights for patients regarding the information that practices hold about them. These include:

Being informed about how their data is used
Patients to have access to their own data
Patients can ask to have incorrect information changed
Restrict how their data is used
Move their patient data from one health organisation to another
The right to object to their patient information being processed (in certain circumstances)
