Confidentiality

We ask you for personal information so that you can receive appropriate care and treatment. This information is recorded in your medical record. 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.

Freedom of Information and Access to Medical Records

The practice is registered and complies with the Data Protection Act 1998. Any request for access to notes by a patient, patient’s representative or outside body will be dealt with in accordance with the Act.

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Practice has produced a Publication Scheme which is a guide to the classes of information the practice intends to routinely make available.
