Three Spires Medical Practice has started preparation for the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25th May 2018 and how it affects the way that the surgery processes personal data, including sensitive health records.
You can find out more about the GDPR here:
One of the requirements of the GDPR is to provide detailed fair processing information – privacy notices – about all processing of personal data. We are working on these notices and they will be provided on this website by 25th May 2018.
We will ensure that patients of Three Spires are made aware of their rights under the new legislation and that the surgery meets its responsibilities under the GDPR.
You have the right to both:
- Opt out of any of the data sharing schemes
- Opt back into any of the data sharing schemes (that you may have already opted out of).
Summary Care Record
A Summary Care Record is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had. Having this information stored in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.
More information can be found on the link below.
