Confidentiality

The information we hold about you is solely for the purpose of caring for your health and will only be seen by those who need to. There is a possibility of patient information being used by other organisations for the purpose of managing your care or the management of health care services.

In addition, changes to National healthcare policy have provided patients with the opportunity to share their information with other carers who are looking after them. This is your choice and you can change your mind about these preferences at any time.

We have a legal responsibility to keep confidential all the information held about you. The obligation that the NHS has. Together with the rights that every individual enjoys, are set out in the Data Protection Act 2018.

If you have any questions relating to patient confidentiality, please contact the Practice Manager. Protecting your personal information is of paramount importance.
