How Your Data is Used

Information is a vital asset, both in terms of the clinical management of individual patients and the efficient management of services and resources. It plays a key part in clinical governance, service planning and performance management.

It is therefore of paramount importance to ensure that information is efficiently managed, and that appropriate policies, procedures and management accountability and structures provide a robust governance framework for information management.

Shifa Medical Practice recognises the rights service users have to be informed of how their information is used and processed. The surgery aims to do this in a confidential, legal open and quality assured manner. The following information may be passed to patients at their request. This information is made available in reception and via the links below where you can download a copy of our policies.
