COVID-19

Due to the outbreak of Covid-19 and recent guidance, The Practice has moved to a total triage system.

Please DO NOT visit the practice unless you have an appointment. All queries will be dealt with over the phone by our reception team. 

If you have symptoms of Covid-19 please ring 111 or visit their website 111.nhs.uk/services/covid-19/

Data Protection and GDPR

What is GDPR?

The General Data protection Regulation (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 GDPR is similar to the Data Protection Act (DPA) 1998, which the Practice already complies with, but GDPR strengthens many of the DPA principles. 

The main changes are:

  • Practices must comply with Subject Access Request (SARs) 
  • Where we need your consent to process data, this consent must be given freely, it must be specific, informed and unambiguous
  • There are new, special protections for patient data
  • The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) must be notified within 72 hours of a data breach
  • Higher fines for data breaches- up to 20 million euros

The changes in GDPR mean that we must get explicit permission from patients when using their data. This is to protect your privacy, and we may ask you to provide consent to do certain things, like contact you or record certain information about you for your clinical records. individuals also have the right to withdraw their consent at any time.
