Data Protection

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) update

This Regulation will replace current data privacy law and will give more rights to patients of Canterbury Medical Practice as individuals and more obligations to the Practice about holding personal data. One of these rights is a right to be informed, which means that Canterbury Medical Practice will give its patients more information than presently about the way in which it uses shares and stores personal information.
