From time to time the practice uses third parties in order to send information to groups of patients, either by text or by letter. It is an important part of our communication with you, and does not involve any of your medical details being released. An example of this is when we send out invitations for flu jabs or clinics.
We use approved organisations which meet the NHS Information Governance standards. When the practice wishes to contact groups of patients, the information regarding contact details and the generic message we want to send is sent electronically. This information is not stored by any third party and is destroyed immediately after use.
If however you prefer the practice not to contact you in this way, please speak to the Reception Team.
