New Data Protection Regulations from May 2018 (GDPR)
Under the new data protection regulations introduced from 25th May 2018, we will continue to contact patients via text messages regarding the delivery of care if they have provided consent to do so.
If practices are sending messages about recommended treatment for the management of a specific health issue, then this is defined as providing appropriate care for patients, not marketing purposes.
If as a new patient and you would like to opt out of contact via text messaging, then please complete the correct part of the registration form and indicate in the marked section. As an existing patient please tell the reception staff and they will update your preferences.
