Website Privacy Statement
Third Party Processors
In order to deliver the best possible service, the practice will share data (where required) with other NHS bodies such as other GP practices and hospitals. In addition the practice will use carefully selected third party service providers. When we have the third party service provider to process data on our behalf then we will always have an appropriate data sharing agreement in place. To ensure that they keep the data secure, that they do not use or share information other than in accordance with our instructions and that they are operating appropriately. Examples of functions that may be carried by third parties include:
- Companies that provide IT services and support, including our core clinical systems which manage patient facing services (such as our website and service accessible through the same); data hosting service providers; systems which facilitate appointment bookings; or electronic prescription services; document management services etc
- Delivery services (for example medication)
Payment providers (for example if you were paying for a prescription or service such as travel vaccinations)
From 10th June 2019 Emis Web (our clinical system) started migrating practice patient storage details to Amazon Web Services (AWS). This is a completely secure database.
Further details regarding third party processors can be supplied on request.
