IMPORTANT CHANGES TO HOW WE HANDLE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We will soon be required to supply your personal medical Information to the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). This information will be taken from the practice in a form that can identify you.
The practice has NO choice but to allow the HSCIC to extract this information.
However, individual patients can instruct their practice to stop the transfer of their data.
For more information on the reasons for this data extract and details on how to opt out of sending your confidential information please pick up a leaflet or complete an opt out form.
