GDPR & Text Reminders

General Data Protection RegulationGDPR )

With effect from 25 May 2018 this new regulation replaces the existing Data Protection Act 1998.

To continue to receive SMS (text) and Email messages from the surgery we will need your written consent. This is VERY IMPORTANT – we often need to contact patients in a hurry with abnormal results etc and traditional methods (such as letters and phone calls) are either too slow and/or too costly (taking into account staff time). To operate swiftly, safely and efficiently we need the freedom to be able to contact you ‘electronically.’

Please follow the link below to complete the online form.

        Consent Form

Each patient needs to complete the above form – there isn’t a ‘family form’.

Posters will be displayed in the waiting room or you can ask at reception for further information.
