Confidentiality Confidentiality

Preserving the confidentiality of patient information is vitally important. This practice is registered under the Data Protection Act. Our medical practice usually involves teams of doctors, other healthcare workers, such as nurses, health visitors, district nurses and sometimes people from outside the healthcare professions such as clinical researchers, pharmacists and auditors. These professional people who look after you may share information about you, as this will help them provide you with the best care available. As an adult, information about you will not be released to, your parents, partners or any other unauthorised persons without your consent.

You have the right to see your own records (both hand written and from the computer) and applications for access should be in writing. There may be a charge.

All clinical audits that are performed are completely anonymous. Patient identification is not disclosed without the written consent of the patient. Queries about confidentiality issues should be directed to the Practice Manager.

The practice does have confidentiality policy for staff and patients, if you would like to see this please contact the practise manager.
