Patient confidentiality

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.

This includes the computer emergency care summary which is available to the out-of-hours service, ambulance serviceĀ and hospitals. If you feel that you do not want this information to be shared, please let us know.

You have the right to know what information we hold about you. If you would like to see your records please contact the Senior Receptionist.
