General Data Protection Regulations

On 25th May 2018, there’s a big change happening to privacy laws across the UK.

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives you more control over how your personal information is used. We will, of course, continue to collect and store your information safely and securely.

Your data is collected and used by us for the purposes of providing healthcare services, and this will not change.

The new GDPR changes will not affect your care in any way, and we are as committed as always to providing the best possible service to our patients.

If you would like to see our full privacy notice, please see the link below:

Or to read more about the changes in our patient information leaflet, see below:
