Declaration

I consent to the practice contacting me by text message and/or email for the purposes of health promotion, practice news and for appointment reminders.

I acknowledge that appointment reminders by text are an additional service and that they may not be sent on all occasions but that the responsibility for attending appointments or cancelling them still rests with me. I can cancel the text message facility at any time.

Text messages are generated using a secure facility but I understand that they are transmitted over a public network onto a personal telephone and as such may not be secure, however the practice will not transmit any information which would enable an individual patient to be identified.

Although sending information across the Internet means that privacy of data cannot be absolutely guaranteed, our online forms offer high levels of security. The forms use HTTPS and TLS (using a 2048 bit certificate) to encrypt data sent to and from your computer when using the site and our server environment is PCI DSS certified – the highest standard of security associated with e-commerce and online finance solutions.

Form submissions are stored on the server for 28 days and are encrypted and secured with a private key known only by the GP Practice.

Should you have any concerns about sending your personal details using the web, please use one of the alternative methods offered by our organisation.
