1. Important information
Medical Imaging Partnership Ltd is in compliance with the national data opt-out policy
This policy applies to patients, carers, visitors, staff members, students, recruitment candidates, clinicians/consultants, contractors/agency staff, suppliers and visitors to Medical Imaging Partnership Ltd website and sets out your rights under the General Data Protection Regulations (also known as GDPR) which came into effect on 25th May 2018. We will only process your personal data under Article 6 (1) and Article 9 (2) of the GDPR.
2. Who we are
Medical Imaging Partnership Ltd (also referred to collectively as “Medical Imaging Partnership”, “we”, “us”, “our” in this policy) is an independent healthcare provider offering high-quality outpatient and radiology services to both private and NHS patients. Our goal is to give both patients and referrers fast access to expert-led services.
To ensure that we process your personal information fairly and lawfully we are required to inform you about:
- Why we need to collect your data
- What personal data we will collect
- How it will be used
- Who it will be shared with
- What rights you have in relation to the personal data we collect from you.
Within this policy, we describe instances where Medical Imaging Partnership is the “Data Controller” (the organisation which decides what information we collect and how it is used), and where we direct or commission the processing of data to help deliver better healthcare, or to assist the management of healthcare services.
There may be situations where Medical Imaging Partnership processes personal data on the instructions of another organisation or individual (i.e. when Medical Imaging Partnership is acting as a “data processor”), but in those circumstances, our use of data would be governed by that organisation or individual.
At Medical Imaging Partnership we recognise the importance of protecting personal and confidential information in all that we do, all we direct or commission, and ensure that we meet our legal duties.
3. What information do we collect about you?
Within the United Kingdom information collection and use is governed by the GDPR legislation detailed above. We only collect and use your personal information according to the legal bases defined in the GDPR and for the lawful purposes of administering the business of Medical Imaging Partnership. The legal bases are as follows:
- Consent: where you have given your specific consent to the processing of your personal data. You may at any time change your mind and withdraw consent, but this may mean we can no longer continue to provide services to you.
- Performance of a contract: where the processing of your data is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract, for example, e-referrals for NHS patients are subject to a contract.
- Compliance with a legal obligation: processing of your data is necessary by law and Medical Imaging Partnership is required to comply.
- In the vital interest: we may process your personal data in order to protect your vital interests, for example in providing emergency treatment or care should it be required.
- Public interest: we may process personal data in order to complete a task carried out in the public interest.
- Legitimate interest: we may process your personal data where we have a legitimate “business” interest in processing that information.
