We're committed to the privacy of individuals using this website. This privacy statement sets out the privacy practices for Guy's and St Thomas' website - www.guysandstthomas.nhs.uk. It applies solely to this website.
Some of the forms on our website collect personal information from you. We're asking you to 'opt-in' before giving us any personal details. This is due to a change to the rules which govern how we can communicate with you and a new regulation on personal data (the General Data Protection Regulation) coming into force. Therefore the new approach relies on you giving us your consent before sharing any personal details with us. If you don't want to share any information there are other ways you can get in touch, for example by phone and email.
Any information you do submit will be kept in the strictest confidence and will never be passed on to a third party, unless there is a legal obligation to do so.
