We ask you for personal information so that you can receive the correct and appropriate care and treatment. This information is recorded on our NHS computer software 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.
Occasionally, we may be required to pass on information to third parties as legislation dictates, for example in the event of a sudden death. All other information/data will only be disclosed with the written consent of the patient.
