CCTV is in place in our practice.
It has been installed solely for the safety and security of our patients and staff, to prevent and deter crime.
Images are recorded 24 hours a day and stored on the hard drives of the recording devices that are situated in secure areas and only the practice managers and those delivering technical support services will have access to the system.
The CCTV only records images and does not record audio.
All CCTV recordings are stored on our recording devices for a limited time before being deleted.
There are signs in the practice telling you that CCTV is in place.
We will only ever share information with the relevant authorities in connection with the safety and security of patients and staff and will not share with any other third parties.
Visitors to the practice have the right to request to see images of themselves on CCTV as part of a request made under the privacy legislation. Like all subject access requests, it should be made in writing.
We have followed the CCTV guidelines produced by the Information Commissioners’ Office.
