We will ask you for information to enable us to give you the best health care and treatment. We then keep this information, together with details of your care, because it may be needed when we see you again. Some of this we will need to share with others concerned with your care.
Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential. Information is kept in compliance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (the “General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR”) and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 and any guidance or codes of practice issued by the European Data Protection Board or the UK’s Information Commissioner from time to time (all as amended, updated or re-enacted from time to time).
If you would like to know more about how we use your patient information or your rights about opting out, please refer to our Patient Privacy Notice.
