Privacy Policy

Home / Privacy Policy

In order for the Practice to comply with the General Data Protection Regulations introduced in May 2018 we need to explain how and why we manage stored data.

Data is stored securely on a local server with a remote back up compliant with industry standards.

Data will be processed to aid in maintaining the optimal health of our patients. It may also be used for internal audit to improve the Practice. It will be shared with other medical practitioners in the Practice and will also be visible to the office staff. It will also be shared with specialists to whom we refer, but only with explicit consent.

This data processing is in accordance with Articles 6 (1)(f) and 9 (2)(h) of the GDPR.

Personal data will be held for 10 years after the last recorded event.

Patients have the right to a copy of all data held by the Practice.

The Practice reserves the right to retain personal data for the purposes of defending itself against potential future litigation. Data can however be made “inactive” and not generally accessible if requested.

Flu and Pneumonia Vaccinations

This is the first winter that seasonal influenza virus will co-circulate alongside the Covid-19 pandemic. Mathematical modelling suggests the winter 2021/2022 influenza season will not only begin earlier than normal, but it could also be 50% larger than typically seen.


Pneumonia affects 1 in 100 people. In addition to flu vaccine, we would now strongly recommend a pneumonia vaccine which protects against 13 or 23 bacterial strains.


Our vaccines will be available to administer from 15th September.


We can provide mobile flu clinics to your workplace for the whole team, or home appointments for individual patients and their families. Alternatively, clients can book an appointment at the Practice between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday.
