Orchard Medical Practice General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

At the end of May 2019, Orchard Medical Practice will be taking over the management of Dr Solway and Mallick Practice.

This means that both practices will use the same reception desk located the front entrance of the building and staff from both practices will be able to book appointments and access information related to patients registered with both practices.

 Whilst things might look a little different at reception, this will not change your ability to book appointments and see your doctor in the usual way.

 Staff from both practices are trained in maintaining confidentiality and will work together to ensure that your health record remains secure and will still only be accessed by or shared with staff that need it for your care

 If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Andrea Clarke or Rachel Andrews  and we would be happy to speak with you. You can find the privacy policy for both practices Here and Here

Orchard Medical Practice aims to provide you with the highest quality health care. To do this we must keep records about you, your health and the care we have provided or plan to provide to you.

Your doctor and other health professionals caring for you, such as nurses or physiotherapists, keep records about your health and treatment so that they are able to provide you with the best possible care.

You may be aware of a recent fine issued Bounty, a pregnancy and parenting club, by the Information Commissioner for sharing information with third parties without making the public aware. You can find more information by clicking this LINK (this link will open in a new window - popups must be allowed). The practice takes privacy and lawful use of information seriously and works hard to ensure that our service providers, partners and suppliers are trustworthy and compliant and although the practice is not directly affiliated with Bounty, we have looked into the matter to provide our patients with reassurance.

The Information Commissioner has recognised that the information sharing was an historic practice that ceased before recent changes in data protection law came into force. Bounty have confirmed that they have stopped selling details of members who sign up and that they have implemented robust data protection practices. They also have a privacy policy that now explicitly states they have stopped sharing data with those data brokerage firms and will never sell members information in the future. Finally, they have appointed an independent data expert who will assess Bounty's procedures annually and publish the findings on the Bounty website.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do let us know.
