Data Protection – keeping your records
To provide you with a high standard of dental care and attention, we need to hold personal information about you. This practice complies with the 1998 Data Protection Act and we have procedures for ensuring that personal information about patients is processed and stored fairly and lawfully. You have the right of access to the data that we hold about you and to receive a copy. Please contact the practice for more information.
Freedom of Information Act 2000
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives the general right of access to all types of recorded information held by the practice. The intention of the Act is to encourage a spirit of openness and transparency in the NHS and the whole public sector.
Our organisation aims to fully support this and has a publication scheme which can be accessed via the Practice Manager. Please contact the practice for more information.
