Your Privacy

This policy provides detailed information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it and the very limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others.

Your privacy matters to us and we are committed to the highest data privacy standards, patient confidentiality and adherence with the Data Protection Act 2018 and UK GDPR. We adopt the six core principles of data protection.


Collection of your Personal Data

Where you provide personal data to us, we will become responsible for it as the data controller.

We will only collect data that is necessary for us to deliver the best possible service and ensure that you are reminded about appointments or information relevant to your ongoing care.


We collect your personal information directly from you, for example, when you visit our practice, get in touch with us by telephone or email, use our booking system or when you visit our website.


We may also collect it from other sources if it is legal to do so. This includes from the NHS or other healthcare providers, institutions, or people you have authorised to provide information on your behalf (for example, parents or guardians), third-party service providers, government, tax or law-enforcement agencies, and others.

We treat all personal data as sensitive but acknowledge that we also process special category data including health data and children’s data.

Sharing of Personal Data

During the delivery of our service to you, we will share your data with other companies who are critical for the provision of our service to you and will be viewed as Data Processors. They are under contract with us and have provided sufficient guarantees that they will process your data only as per the terms of that contract and throughout processing activities will ensure your data is protected using appropriate technical and organisation measures.


Our operations are based in the UK, and your personal information is generally processed within the UK and countries within the European Economic Area (EEA). In some instances, we may transfer your personal information to third countries, for example, where our suppliers or cloud service providers are situated outside the UK and EEA.


If the recipient is situated in a third country that has not received an adequacy decision from the relevant regulator, we will ensure additional safeguards are in place including the use of applicable standard contractual clauses.


A full list of processors is available from our Data Protection Officer.


Where necessary we may disclose your information to health care professionals including the NHS. We may also pass information to external agencies and organisations, including the police, for the prevention and detection of fraud and criminal activity. Should any claim be made, we may pass your personal information to our insurers and, if our business is wholly or partially transferred to a third party, your personal information may be one of the transferred assets.


Securing and Processing of your Personal Data

To provide and manage our services your electronic data is stored and processed by Optix, which has appropriate security processes in place.


Your data is also stored within our own IT systems, which are secured to prevent access or intrusion by anyone who is not authorised to have access to your data. Our practices are operated to ensure that all records and equipment holding your personal data are physically protected.


In the unlikely event that we lose your data, or a device on which your data resides, or it is accessed by someone unauthorised, we will inform you if the loss or unauthorised access of your data has potential to cause you harm. We may report this to the Information Commissioners Office, who are responsible for regulating data protection legislation in the UK.
