What information do we collect (and how do we use it?)
- When signing up to Patient Access using a PIN document we ask for your name, birthdate and NHS number. When signing up online we also require your sex, house number and postcode. We use this information to help us verify your identity by cross-checking the records kept at your surgery. We do not keep an independent record of these details.
- if your practice does not offer online registration and you register an interest to be informed when it does, then we keep the details you provide on-file so that we can notify you.
- We automatically receive and record information from your browser including your IP address.
How do we protect your information?
- Accounts cannot be created without confirming your identity. When signing up online your account is restricted until you visit your practice to confirm your identity.
- We password-protect your account.
- When you view, book or cancel appointments we use industry-standard SSL-encryption to protect the information transfer.
