GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations)

On the 25th May 2018 a new European Law came into play for all organisations.

 Please notify reception if you are happy for us to contact you via Letter, Telephone Call or Text.

 Failing to do this could affect your health care as Rainworth Surgery is legally required to work within the new regulation and requires explicit consent from our patients for specific forms of contact.
