We want to assure you that any information you share with any member of our practice, whether it’s a doctor, nurse, or receptionist, will be treated as confidential. This means that nothing will be disclosed to anyone else without your permission, even if you are under the age of 16. However, in extremely rare circumstances where there is a risk of serious harm to you or someone else, we may need to share confidential information without your consent. We will always make every effort to discuss this with you beforehand.
We are fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduced in May 2018. You can review our Privacy Notice, which provides details on how we handle your personal information. You can access the Nettlebed Surgery Privacy Notice template V2 for more information.
In addition, we are participating in the General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDfPR) initiative, which involves sharing data with NHS Digital. This collaboration is essential for crucial health and care planning and research purposes. Data collection for this purpose commenced on July 1, 2021.
