Data Protection Law is changing
On the 25th May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation, known as GDPR came into effect. GDPR imposes additional obligations on organisations and gives you extra rights around how your data is used.
Thames Avenue Surgery ask you for information about yourself so that we can give you appropriate care and treatment. This information is kept, together with details of the care you have received, because it may be needed if we have to see you again.
Your information is not only used to guide and administer the care you receive, it is also used to help look after the health of the general public, to audit NHS services, to investigate complaints and to make sure our services can meet patient needs in the future.
Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to keep your information confidential and anyone who receives that information from us is also under a legal duty to keep it confidential too.
We have now published new Privacy Notices to give you more information on the data we hold on you, what we do with that data, who we share your data with and your new rights under the GDPR.
You can view our Privacy Notices here or alternatively you can request a copy from us directly.
