The practice will use third parties to provide services that involve your information such as;
Removal and destruction of confidential waste
Provision of clinical systems
Provision of connectivity and servers
Digital dictation services
Data analytics or warehousing (these allow us to make decisions about care or see how effectively the practice is run – personal data will never be sold or made available to organisations not related to your care delivery)
We have contracts in place with these third parties that prevent them from using it in any other way that instructed. These contracts also require them to maintain good standards of security to ensure your confidentiality.
