Website Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting the privacy of individuals who visit this site. This policy explains how we use any personal information we collect from you via www.draytonmedicalpractice.nhs.uk

 Personal Identifiable Information

You can access most of the pages on this website without giving us your personal information.

However, you may choose to provide us with your personal information on some pages of the website.

For example when you:

  • Complete an enquiry form
  • Provide comments and feedback
  • Request a repeat prescription
  • Cancel an appointment.
  • When you complete a change of address form

The information we collect through the prescription request form includes information regarding the medication you take.

The information we collect through the appointment cancellation form includes the time, date and person with which the appointment was made.


The information we collect through the change of address form includes both your past and present (new) addresses and the names and birthdates of any family members who moved with you.

On any electronic form you may be asked to provide:

  • Your full name
  • Your address
  • Your date of birth
  • Your contact telephone numbers

 Use of Your Personal Information Top 

We shall not disclose your personal information to any third parties without obtaining your prior consent unless we are required by law to do so.

 Electronic Forms Top 

If you submit a form, we shall use your personal information to administer and respond to your enquiry or request. We securely store the information you supply and a copy of it is also sent via the secure NHS.net email system to the address of the most appropriate person at the medical practice to deal with your form.

The email is kept as reference for only a short time frame, no more than 7 days, while the request is carried out or a response is made. The original form that you submitted online is kept under secure conditions on our web-server for no more than six months.

We keep this information for this length of time in case there is a need to refer to it due to query or complaint by the user and also for internal monitoring purposes to maintain and improve the services we offer. We may review this timeframe and shorten or lengthen it according to the findings of the review.
