Privacy Notice for Digitalisation of Lloyd George Medical Records

Deer Park Family Medical Practice is currently in the process of digitising Medical Records.  Scanning these paper-based records and making them digital will enable better utilisation of space, creating more clinical space, staff areas, multi team space potentially removing the need for some practices to build extensions.  In addition, it will also make your record more easily and speedily accessible to clinical staff within your practice.

Your complete GP medical record will be digital and will be only accessible by your GP practice, with the paper-based records being securely destroyed.  The scanning and destruction of the paper records will follow strict data protection guidelines adhered to by the NHS.  As with paper based records, digital records are stored for the durations specified in the Records Management Codes of Practice for Health and Social Care

If you wish to discuss the scheme, please inform the Practice direct by letter to the Practice Manager at Deer Park Family Medical Practice.
