Keele Practice GDPR and Patient Privacy Statement
Why we collect information about you and how we use your information
In the practice we aim to provide you with the highest quality of healthcare. To enable us to do this we must keep records about you, your health, and the care that we have provided and plan to provide to you. The practice will only store your information in identifiable form for as long as is necessary and in accordance with the NHS England’s rules.
You have a right to privacy under the General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act. The practice needs your personal, sensitive and confidential data in order to perform its statutory health duties, in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller, in compliance with Article 6 (e) of the GDPR (the processing is necessary for you to perform a task in the public interest or for your official functions, and the task or function has a clear basis in law). We also need this for the purposes of preventative or occupational medicine, for the assessment of the working capacity of the employee, medical diagnosis, the provision of health or social care or treatment, or the management of health or social care systems and services in compliance with Article 9 (h) of the GDPR (for health and social care services).
