We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide information by which you can be identified when using this website, our online booking facility or web based scheduling system, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
The Fleet Street Clinic may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.
What we collect
We may collect the following information:
- Your name and job title.
- Contact information including email addresses and telephone numbers.
- Location information such as postcode.
- Other information relevant to customer surveys and/or offers.
- This website also contains links to online pre-vaccination questionnaires that allow you to provide us with limited medical data, such as information about allergies.
What we do with the information we gather
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
To respond to enquiries you make about our services.
- To remind you about vaccines or other services when you have asked us to do so
- In the case of corporate users, to help you make and confirm bookings, and to send you confirmation messages and reminders when your employer or organisation has asked us to do so.
- For our own internal record keeping.
- Where limited medical information is collected, this will be used to help us provide you with individual medical advice regarding vaccination.
- For improvement of our products and services.
- We may periodically send emails relating to services that you have used that we think you may find relevant, using the email address which you have provided.
We will not use your information commercially (i.e. sell it to or share it with any third party).
Workplace visits for vaccination
When we attend for a workplace visit for vaccination, we provide everyone wishing to be vaccinated with a pre-vaccination questionnaire. This questionnaire may sometimes also be distributed electronically before the day of vaccination. The questionnaire collects information on a voluntary basis such as:
- Your name and job title, and other identifiers such as your date of birth.
- Any contact information you may choose to give us, including a (home or work) contact address, email addresses and telephone numbers.
- If applicable, the name of your company or organisation.
- Limited medical data, such as information about allergies; also, your age (for ease of reference in addition to your date of birth) – to help the doctor or nurse perform their medical duties and assess your suitability for vaccination.
- Your signature, consenting to flu vaccination.
Following a workplace visit, pre-vaccination questionnaires are taken to the Fleet Street Clinic, and are stored securely in accordance with prevailing guidelines. They may be scanned into a secure archive but are not transferred to any computerised system for further processing, and are accessed only if a query arises subsequently. Examples of such possible queries include: accounting, questions about which brand of vaccine was used, batch numbers, adverse events, and possible contact for product recalls or manufacturer alerts. We do not disclose medical records to employers or send them to GPs, or to any other party without your prior consent in writing or unless required by law to do so. Your pre-vaccination questionnaire will not be used for marketing purposes.
When you attend our premises for vaccination
If you attend our premises as part of an arrangement with your employer or organisation, your pre-vaccination questionnaire will be stored as if we had vaccinated you at a workplace visit. Your data will not be processed further.
If you attend as a private client, the same data will be collected on your pre-vaccination questionnaire, but your contact information will be entered on our computer system for billing purposes, and to send you future reminders for flu vaccination, and occasional information about our other services.
Unless you ask us not to, our normal practice is to try to send you reminders when your current vaccine protection runs out, or when you are due for tests or further examinations.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
