Emails are going out to all our existing and lapsed patients to let them know about our GDPR Privacy Policy.  Lapsed patients have been invited to read the policy due to our Record Retention Policy.  Our records are kept for 7 years after the date of your last appointment.  If you are a prospective patient, you can read our privacy policy before booking your first appointment to ensure you’re happy with it.
