Our CCTV cameras are located within the surgery waiting room and externally between surgery buildings and both patient and staff parking areas. We take the privacy and dignity of all our patients, staff and visitors very seriously, always taking care to position our cameras accordingly and do not have any hidden cameras in any of our public areas. All the images are recorded 24 hours a day.

- To protect staff, patients and visitors
- To protect NHS premises
- To increase personal safety and reduce the fear of crime
- To reduce incidents of violence and aggression to staff members
- To support the police in reducing and detecting crime
- To assist in identifying, apprehending and prosecuting offenders
- To provide a deterrent effect and reduce criminal activity
- To assist in traffic management and car parking schemes
