Our Commitment to Good Practice
DATA PRIVACY STATEMENT UPDATED TO COMPLY WITH GDPR
The Student Health Department has updated its Data Privacy Statement to comply with the requirements of GDPR. You can download it here GDPRPRIVACYSTATEMENT
The introduction of new General Data Protection Regulations is an opportunity for all those involved in providing care to you to confirm their commitment to the highest standards of practice with regard to how we collect, store, use, and make accessible to you, all your personal health data.
Respecting Your Medical Records
The UCC Student Health Department is a trusted community governed by an ethic of privacy and confidentiality. In order to provide for your care, we need to collect and keep information about you and your health in your personal medical record. Our policies are consistent with the Medical Council guidelines and the privacy principles of the Data Protection Regulations. This practice has voluntarily adopted the requirements of ‘Processing of Patient Personal Data: A Guideline for General Practitioners’.
