General Data Protection Regulations Update
Dear patient of London Osteopathic Care,
At your initial consultation we will provided you with a form to fill out and sign which states your written consent for the clinic to use your data to:
- Book appointments
- Send invoices
- Send updates and the clinics newsletter
“The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) superseded the UK Data Protection Act 1998 on 25 May 2018. It expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal data is collected and processed and places a range of new obligations on organisations to be more accountable for data protection. The Data Protection Act 2018 enshrines the GDPR into UK law, and supplements the GDPR by filling in the sections of the Regulation that are left to individual member states to interpret and implement. As an act of UK law, the Data Protection Act’s requirements will continue to apply after Brexit.” – ITGOVERANCE
As a clinic we retain your data for a minimum of eight years after your last appointment. If you are under the age of consent (18) at the time of the appointment, we are required by law to retain this information for seven years after the age of consent is reached.
We do not share any of your data with third parties. In the event that information is required to be passed on to a third party (i.e other healthcare services) we will obtain your explicit consent to do so.
This information is used solely by the staff at the practice.
If you have any queries regarding GDPR or how we use your information please do not hesitate to contact the clinic.
