Data Protection

We take the protection of personal data very seriously. When you entrust your personal data to us, we take steps to ensure that personal data is held securely and used only for the purposes which you have agreed to.

Confidentiality is the cornerstone of health care and central to the work of everyone working at Hornchurch Healthcare. All information about patients is confidential, from the most sensitive diagnosis, to the fact of having visited the surgery or being registered at the Practice. Information is only accessed when necessary for your care.

Under the data protection act, patients are entitled to see information held about them in computerised medical records. Requests should be made direct to the doctor.
