Privacy Notice for Patients

At Drs Chalmers & Meier, we’re committed to protecting and respecting your privacy

This Privacy Notice explains why the GP Practice collects information about you, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.

How is your information used?

The Healthcare professionals who provide you with care maintain records about your health and any treatment or care you have received previously (e.g. NHS Trust, GP Surgery, Walk-in clinic, etc.). These records help to provide you with the best possible healthcare, and are accessible by all members of the practice team – General Practitioners, Nurses, Healthcare Assistants, Pharmacist and administration and reception staff.

NHS health records may be electronic, on paper or a mixture of both, and we use a combination of working practices and technology to ensure that your information is kept confidential and secure.

What type of information is collected from you?

Records which this GP Practice hold about you may include the following information:

o Details about you, such as your address, contact numbers, carer, legal representative, emergency contact details;

o Any contact the surgery has had with you, such as appointments, telephone consultations etc.;

o Notes and reports about your health which could be generated from the practice or other Health & Social care organisations;

o Details about your treatment and care;

o Results of investigations such as laboratory tests, x-rays etc.;

o Relevant information of you relatives or those who care for you;

o Any other information which you have agreed to share with us, relating to you and your carer/family members.

Your records are used to facilitate the healthcare you receive from the practice to ensure care and treatment is delivered in the best possible way. Information held about you may be used to help protect the health of the public and to help us manage and contribute to the wider the NHS.

Information may be used within the GP practice for clinical audits to monitor the quality of the service provided.

Some of this information will be held centrally and used for statistical purposes. Where we do this, we take strict measures to ensure that individual patients cannot be identified by redacting this information. Sometimes your information may be requested to be used for research purposes, and the practice will always gain your consent before releasing the information for this purpose.


How do we maintain the confidentiality of your records?

We are committed to protecting your privacy and will only use information collected lawfully in accordance with:

o EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

o Data Protection Act 1998

o Human Rights Act 1998

o Common Law Duty of Confidentiality

o Health and Social Care Act 2012

o NHS Codes of Confidentiality, Information Security and Records Management

o Information: To Share or Not to Share Review

Every member of staff who works for an NHS organisation has a legal obligation to keep information about you confidential. Our policy within the Practice ensures that all staff adheres to a strict internal Confidentiality Policy.

We will only ever use or pass on information about you if others involved in your care have a genuine need for it. We will not disclose your information to any third party without your permission unless there are exceptional circumstances (i.e. life or death situations), where the law requires information to be passed on and / or in accordance with the information sharing principle following the Caldicott information sharing review (Information to share or not to share) where “The duty to share information can be as important as the duty to protect patient confidentiality.” This means that health and social care professionals should have the confidence to share information in the best interests of their patients within the framework set out by the Caldicott principles. They should be supported by the policies of their own employers, regulators and professional bodies.

Who has access to your information?

We do not sell or rent your information to third parties. We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

We may share your information, subject to strict agreements on how it will be used, with the following organisations;

o NHS Trusts / Foundation Trusts;

o Other General Practitioners;

o Other General Practices with which we are federated and provide collaborative services;

o NHS Commissioning Support Units;

o Independent Contractors such as dentists, opticians, pharmacists;

o Private Sector Providers;

o Voluntary Sector Providers;

o Ambulance Trusts;

o Clinical Commissioning Groups;

o Social Care Services;

o NHS Digital;

o Local Authorities;

o Education Services;

o Fire and Rescue Services;

o Police & Judicial Services;

o Other ‘data processors’ which you will be informed  of.

You will be informed who your data will be shared with and in some cases asked for explicit consent for this to happen when this is required.

We may also use external companies to process personal information, such as for archiving purposes. These companies are bound by contractual agreements to ensure information is kept confidential and secure.

Risk Stratification

Risk stratification data tools are increasingly being used in the NHS to help determine a person’s risk of suffering a particular condition, preventing an unplanned or (re)admission and identifying a need for preventive intervention. Information about you is collected from a number of sources including NHS Trusts and from this GP Practice. Risk stratification enables your GP to focus on preventing ill health and not just the treatment of sickness. If necessary your GP may be able to offer you additional services. Please note that you have the right to opt out of your data being used in this way.

Medicines Management

The Practice may conduct Medicines Management Reviews of medications prescribed to its patients. This service performs a review of prescribed medications to ensure patients receive the most appropriate, up to date and cost effective treatments. This service is provided to practices within North East Lincolnshire through North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group.

How long do we keep your information?

Your health record is a lifelong record which will be digital, with potentially some records in paper format depending on when you were born.

Lawful Bases for Processing

Processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller
