Data Protection

Data Protection and Confidentiality

We are registered under the data protection act and are bound by the rules governing the collection and storage of personal data.

Patients are entitled to see their medical records or have copies sent to them for a small administrative fee.

All requests to view medical records or to receive copies of your records should be made in writing to the Deputy Practice Manager at the Hampstead Group Practice. We recommend that if you would like to see your records a time is arranged to do this with your registered GP as there may be medical terminology that requires explanation.  

We have a duty to keep your medical records accurate and up to date.  Please feel free to advise us of any errors of fact which may have crept into your medical records over the years.

Your personal data will only be seen by professionals at the practice directly involved in providing your care. Occasionally anonymised health information is sent to the Primary Care Trust (NHS Camden) to support quality monitoring, public health analyses or post-payment verification.  We will not send any information about you to outside agencies (e.g. insurance companies) without your consent. In addition, no information will be given to partners or relatives without your written consent.

Discrimination

This practice does not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition.

CCTV

We have CCTV installed for your protection and the protection of our staff. We are registered with the ICO.

Call recording

Please note that all calls to the reception are recorded and monitored for your clinical safety and security.
