RGP Privacy Notice

The practice complies with the Isle of Man Data Protection Act 2002 and access to medical records legislation. Identifiable information about you will be shared with others in the following circumstances:

  • To provide further medical treatment for you e.g. from district nurses and hospital services.
  • To help you get other services e.g. from the social work department. This requires your consent.
  • When we have a duty to others e.g. in child protection cases anonymised patient information will also be used at local and national level to help the Health Board and Government plan services e.g. for diabetic care.

If you do not wish anonymous information about you to be used in such a way, please let us know.

Reception and administration staff require access to your medical records in order to do their jobs. These members of staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the medical staff.

GDPR

This is the new General Data Protection Regulations that comes into effect on Friday 25th May 2018.  It replaces the previous Data Protection Act and gives you as the Data Subject far more control over the use and retention of your data. 

You will be asked for your consent before information is shared with third party health professionals, ie District Nursing or Podiatry.

If you would like anyone other than yourself to collect your prescriptions, sick notes, test results, letters etc you will need to complete a consent form, again uploaded, and return it to the Practice.  We will not hand over any patient identifying information to a third party unless we have this consent.
