Patient confidentiality

If you wish to discuss something of a private nature please make an appointment with the doctor or nurse who is mostly dealing with your case.

Confidentiality is very important to us. Any medical information about you will only be shared with other health professionals involved in your care. Please note that although our secretarial staff have access to your records to perform their duties, they are fully trained about their duty of confidentiality.

It may occasionally be necessary for officers of the Primary Care Trust to have access to your records to audit the care that we provide.

Please note that for anyone else to have access to your records or information about you (including family members) we will need your written permission.

*We offer everyone, including those under 16 a confidential* service in a safe environment.

*We have a duty to keep you safe. Confidentiality will only be broke in very EXCEPTIONAL circumstance.
