Medicines Management Privacy Notice

Your GP Practice supports a medicines management review service of medications prescribed to its patients. This service involves a review of prescribed medications to ensure patients receive the most appropriate, up to date and cost-effective treatments. This service is provided by qualified and registered healthcare professionals from within the GP practice, our NHS Primary Care Network, NHS North Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group or by external partners approved by the GP practice. Patient identifiable information does not leave the practice system but is accessed to ensure only appropriate clinical recommendations or decisions are made for each patient. Each patient can opt out of (or back into) the practice using their data for anything other than specified purposes or where there is a lawful requirement to do so.


We take the security of your information very seriously and we do everything we can to ensure that your information is always protected and secure.  We regularly update our processes and systems and we also ensure that our staff are properly trained.  We also carry out assessments and audits of the information that we hold about you and make sure that if we provide any other services, we carry out proper assessments and security reviews.

Text Messaging and Contacting You

Because we are obliged to protect any confidential information we hold about you and we take this seriously, it is imperative that you let us know immediately if you change any of your contact details.  We may contact you using SMS texting to your mobile phone in the event that we need to notify you about appointments and other services that we provide to you involving your direct care, therefore you must ensure that we have your up to date details.  This is to ensure that we are actually contacting your and not another person.
