Privacy Notice – payments 

Plain English explanation

Contract holding GPs in the UK receive payments from their respective governments on a tiered basis. Most of the income is derived from baseline capitation payments made
according to the number of patients registered with the practice on quarterly payment days. These amount paid per patient per quarter varies according to the age, sex and other demographic details for each patient. There are also graduated payments made according to the practice’s achievement of certain agreed national quality targets known as the Quality
and Outcomes Framework (QUOF), for instance the proportion of diabetic patients who have had an annual review. Practices can also receive payments for participating in agreed
national or local enhanced services, for instance opening early in the morning or late at night or at the weekends. Practices can also receive payments for certain national initiatives
such as immunisation programs and practices may also receive incomes relating to a variety of non patient related elements such as premises. Finally there are short term initiatives and projects that practices can take part in. Practices or GPs may also receive income for participating in the education of medical students, junior doctors and GPs themselves as
well as research.
In order to make patient based payments basic and relevant necessary data about you needs to be sent to the various payment services. The release of this data is required by English
laws. We are required by Articles in the General Data Protection Regulations to provide you with the information in the following 9 subsections.

* “Common Law Duty of Confidentiality”, common law is not written out in one document like an Act of
Parliament. It is a form of law based on previous court cases decided by judges; hence, it is also referred to as
‘judge-made’ or case law. The law is applied by reference to those previous cases, so common law is also said
to be based on precedent.

The general position is that if information is given in circumstances where it is expected that a duty of
confidence applies, that information cannot normally be disclosed without the information provider’s consent.
In practice, this means that all patient information, whether held on paper, computer, visually or audio
recorded, or held in the memory of the professional, must not normally be disclosed without the consent of the
patient. It is irrelevant how old the patient is or what the state of their mental health is; the duty still applies.

Three circumstances making disclosure of confidential information lawful are:
• where the individual to whom the information relates has consented;
• where disclosure is in the public interest; and
• where there is a legal duty to do so, for example a court order.
