How we use your personal data:

We use post, telephone, email and SMS messaging for the purpose of arranging appointments, discussing any issues, for informing you of the status of any eye-care appliances ordered, or when your next appointment is due. We do not routinely use these methods for marketing purposes but will seek your express verbal permission to contact you for marketing purposes.

To ensure complete care relating to the outcome of your eye examination, we will from time to time need to share your personal data with other healthcare providers (including other Optometric practices, as well as your GP and NHS or private hospital departments). This will only be done with your permission and in your knowledge.
