Important Changes about Data Protection
Many patients may have noticed they have been receiving emails about new privacy regulations coming into force at the end of May 2018. This is due to GDPR (also known as the General Data Protection Regulation) which is a new European framework for data protection laws. It is designed to give every individual greater protection, rights and control over how their data is collected, stored, used and shared.
The Practice fully supports these regulations and have reflected these rights and interests in our new Privacy Statement. We are required to provide clarity on what data we have, how we use it, why we need it and who has access to it. We have also appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO) who can be contacted if anyone has concerns:-
