Patient confidentiality

Information about patients is held under legal and ethical obligations of confidentiality. Information provided in confidence will not be used or disclosed in a form that might identify the patient without his or her consent. Confidentiality is a legal requirement derived in case law and is established within professional codes of conduct and terms and conditions of service for all staff.

We respect your right to privacy and keep all your health information confidential and secure. It is important that the NHS keeps accurate and up-to-date records about your health and treatment so that those treating you can give you the best possible care.
This information may be used for management and audit purposes. However, it is usually only available to, and used by, those involved in your care. You have the right to know what information we hold about you. If you would like to see your records please contact the Practice Manager.
