Your Data Matters
Information about your health and care helps us to improve your individual care, speed up diagnosis, plan your local services and research new treatments. In May 2018, the strict rules about how this data can and cannot be used were strengthened. The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used.
The National Data Opt-Out programme is a service that allows patients to opt out of their confidential patient information being used for research and planning.
Patients can view or change their national data opt-out choice at any time by using the online service at www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters.
If you are concerned about the way we are handling your information or wish to make a complaint please contact the Practice Manager on 01787 378 226
If the issue cannot be resolved by our organisation, you have the right to report it to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO). The ICO is the UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals. You can contact them on the details below:
