GP Care is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. GP Care is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
Additional accessibility considerations
Although our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, we have also applied some Level AAA Success Criteria: High Contrast toggle hard coded into the site, no use of images of text, no time limits on the website and audio is clear with minimal background noise.
We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of GP Care. Please let us know if you encounter accessibility barriers on www.gpcare.org.uk/contact-us Your feedback will help us integrate future accessibility elements.

Personal Data You Provide
Your privacy is important to us. By providing personal information such as your name and e-mail address via the forms on this website, you agree to us contacting you with regard to the information provided.
Some forms on our website also include a check box asking you for permission to add you to our mailing list. This is an opt-in mailing list and your personal information will be used solely by us (and all such emails include a link for opt-out).
How We Use Your Personal Data
We use the data you provide via this website to:
- communicate with you, for example: we use contact details such as email address or phone number when responding to enquiries made via online forms

Our “Lawful Reasons” For Processing Your Personal Data
The “UK General Data Protection Regulation” (UK GDPR) is the primary piece of legislation defining your rights over our processing of your personal information. The UK GDPR requires us to declare which of six “lawful reasons” we are relying on when we are processing your personal data: we operate on the basis of “consent” when sending newsletters (you won’t get sent a newsletter unless you have explicitly opted in to receive one)…. and we operate on the basis of “legitimate interest” when communicating with you in other ways (e.g. when responding to your enquiry).
How Long We Keep Personal Data
Personal data may be stored by the website for a period of up to 90 days after which time it is removed automatically.
Transfer of Personal Data
From time to time we may pass personal data such as your name and email address to other services that we use to send out newsletters and other communications (both electronic and print). Companies based outside the UK are permitted destinations under UK GDPR legislation, as long as the country, territory, sector or international organisation is covered by the ‘adequacy regulations’ or by the ‘appropriate safeguards’ set out within that legislation. Many popular US products like Gmail, Dropbox and Mailchimp are covered by Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs).
Questions or Complaints
In the first instance we hope you will contact us directly with any questions or complaints (contact details are displayed prominently on this website). However, legal rights regarding privacy are the remit of the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and you will find more information about how to complain here: https://ico.org.uk/concerns/
