GDPR -General Data Protection Regulation
GDPR came into force on 25th May 2018, and was designed to modernize laws that protect the personal information of individuals.
The Practice handles medical records in- line with the laws on data protection and confidentiality. All patients’ records on file or computer are completely confidential. The practice complies with the Access to Medical Records Act, the Data Protection Act and the Freedom of Information Act. Access to patient records is limited to health professionals and administration staff who are bound by a code of confidentiality. In order to maintain confidentiality, test results will only be given to the patients themselves or parents of minors.
