New General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
GDPR comes into force on the 25th May 2018. As a result of this we are reviewing how we record and manage consent.
We will be introducing text reminders about your appointments, health checks due or general health advice to which you will need to opt in. If we have your mobile number you will receive a text asking you to reply back with the word START which means you will carry on receiving texts from us, or the word STOP in which case you will not receive any communication from us after the 25th May.
You can also inform the reception team next time you speak to them and they will add the appropriate code to your record.
If you have any questions about this, please speak to a member of staff who will be able to assist you.
