Patient Newsletter – GDPR extract for patients

To ensure compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Giffords Surgery must ensure that information is provided to patients about how their personal data is processed in a manner which is:

  • Concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible;
  • Written in clear and plain language, particularly if addressed to a child; and
  • Free of charge

At Giffords Surgery, the practice privacy notice is displayed on our website, through signage in the waiting room, and in writing during patient registration (by means of a leaflet). We will:

  • Inform patients how their data will be used and for what purpose
  • Allow patients to opt out of sharing their data, should they so wish

 

We will collect information such as personal details, including name, address, next of kin, records of appointments, visits, telephone calls, your health records, treatment and medications, test results, X-rays, etc. and any other relevant information to enable us to deliver effective medical care.

You have a right to object to your information being shared. Should you wish to opt out of data collection, please contact a member of staff who will be able to explain how you can opt out and prevent the sharing of your information; this is done by registering a Type 1 opt-out, preventing your information from being shared outside this practice.
