We respect your right to privacy and keep all your health information confidential and secure. It is important that the NHS keeps accurate and up-to-date records about your health and treatment so that those treating you can give you the best possible care. Your health information may be used for management and audit purposes. However, it is usually only available to, and used by, those involved in your care.

In line with the new GDPR 2018 rules, Riverside Surgery protects your health information in line with these legal requirements.
