We ask you for personal information so that you can receive appropriate care and treatment. This information is recorded on computer and we are registered under the Data Protection Act. The practice will ensure that patient confidentiality is maintained at all times by all members of the practice team. However, for the effective functioning of a multi-disciplinary team it is sometimes necessary that medical information about you is shared between members of the team.
We cannot discuss your case with another person, such as a member of your family, if you have not given us consent to do so. You need to put such a request in writing, naming the person with whom details can be shared. The practice will send you a letter back confirming the details.
If you have any queries, please ring the surgery and our reception staff will be pleased to clarify matters/assist you.
