This is new EU legislation to protect personal data for all EU citizens. It is a significant change in data protection for every business in the UK including health care. It covers data processing – any action taken with personal data (including storage) and personal data – information that about an individual that can identify them.
As a practice we have policies and procedures in place ensuring all patient data is held securely and all information is strictly confidential.
Please see attached our privacy notices which explains why we collect information about our patients and how that information may be used.
