Your Personal Data
Personal data is any information that allows a living individual to be identified either by itself or when combined with other information held by the data controller. Mr Norman-Taylor is the data controller for his private practice, London Children’s Orthopaedics Ltd. The NHS and private healthcare providers (such as HCA UK) are also data controllers. For more information and definitions please contact the Information Commissioner's Office (ico.org.uk).
Your child’s personal data is your responsibility under the above regulations. Where we (London Children’s Orthopaedics Ltd) refer to your personal data in this information document, we are including your child’s personal data.
Your personal data will be processed (and shared) only for the following reasons:
All of the above are subject in addition to other regulations to protect patients and consumers.
The lawful bases under GDPR for processing your personal data are the following. At least one must apply:
(a) Consent: the individual has given clear consent for us to process their personal data for a specific purpose.
(b) Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract we have with you, or because you have asked us to take specific steps before entering into a contract.
(c) Legal obligation: the processing is necessary for us to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations).
(d) Vital interests: the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life.
(e) Public task: the processing is necessary for us to perform a task in the public interest or for our official functions, and the task or function has a clear basis in law.
(f) Legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party unless there is a good reason to protect your personal data which overrides those legitimate interests.
Collecting your personal data
Information submitted through this website or by e-mail is normally unprotected until it reaches us (London Children’s Orthopaedics Ltd). We will not send you an e-mail unless you have indicated verbally or in writing that you give consent for your e-mail address to be used by us. We will not include your personal data when we contact you by e-mail unless you have given your consentfor us to do so. We will use encryption when we do, unless you ask us not to.
Mr Norman-Taylor will also collect personal data during the consultation with you in the clinic. Personal data includes the opinion that he and other healthcare providers form about your child and his/her condition.
The data collected will be the minimum needed to provide the healthcare and the opinion that you seek for your child. What is and isn’t needed could be debated, but the purpose is to have as clear a picture as possible.
We are obliged under the regulations to ensure that the personal data we hold is accurate. So please let us know if you find anything that is not. We also have to keep it up to date, so please let us know if anything changes.
We are obliged to respond if you ask for the data we hold to be corrected or if you only want it used in certain ways.
We are obliged to respond within a month to any such requests we receive from you.
Sharing and processing your personal data
It may be necessary for Mr Norman-Taylor to contact other healthcare providers about you and your child for the purposes of providing medical care and/or advice. We will use encrypted e-mails for this purpose.
Sometimes it is helpful to discuss your child at a meeting. These meetings are for doctors and other healthcare providers, who are also governed by medical confidentiality and data protection enshrined in law and the codes of conduct of professional bodies.
London Children’s Orthopedics Ltd will retain data about you which we obtain as a result of you visiting this website. We will use that information only for medical and billing purposes.
When you send an email or complete an enquiry form, Mr Norman-Taylor will not share your email address or private information with anyone else, with the exception of necessary clinicians (who provide the services about which you are enquiring), medical administration staff and IT technicians who all follow strict confidentiality rules.
Sometimes we will receive your personal data from another healthcare provider or their agent. If so, we will ask you whether you consent to the use of this data as above.
Sometimes we will share your personal data with your embassy if your embassy is acting as the agent for your healthcare provision. Embassies and countries outside the EEC are not regulated by GDPR.
Personal data is used for billing purposes and for health insurance claims. It will therefore be shared with your health insurance provider. Only the minimum information required will be shared.
You can ask for your data not to be processed or shared in certain ways. We have to respond within a month if we receive this request from you.
Keeping your personal data
Medical records are part of your personal data. They can be stored indefinitely. For children, they are often stored from birth to adulthood. You have the right to ask for your personal data and/or your child’s personal data to be destroyed at any time. However, we also have the right to object to this for medical and/or medico-legal reasons. Your child will also have a right to object.
You have a right to see copies of the personal data we hold about you and your child.
We must respond within a month to any such request from you
We must obtain your consent before we can process your personal data. This usually means verbal consent at first, followed by written consent by e-mail.
As indicated above, it is not necessary to obtain your consent to process personal data under certain circumstances. This includes emergency situations and the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults.
This Privacy Information is part of the consent process. We have to provide it to you at the time of collecting your personal data directly from you, or as soon as possible (no more than a month later) if we receive your personal data from somewhere else. We also have to provide you with this Privacy Information at the time of communicating your personal data to someone else if you have not already received it.
