What information do we collect (and how do we use it?)

  • When signing up to i-Patient we ask for a few details to help us verify your identity by cross-checking the records kept at your surgery. We do not keep an independent record of these details. We keep a copy of your name and email address to allow us to communicate with you. We do not keep a copy of your Date of Birth, NHS Number, or any other data you enter during the signup process.
  • We automatically receive and record information from your browser including your IP address.

How do we protect your information?

  • Your account is password protected with strong encryption (we do not have access to your password).
  • Your account may be linked to your GP practice - we do not have access to this link if you have not entered your password.
  • When you view, book or cancel appointments we use industry-standard SSL-encryption to protect the information transfer.
