Patients should note that confidential personal data will be shared within the health care team for their continuing care, unless they object, and that they may withdraw their consent at any stage. If personal data is to be used for any other purpose, then explicit and fully formed consent will be obtained from the patient. Any information shared between the surgery and services such as the Primary Care Trust will be anonymised.
All patients have the right to request Access to their Medical Records. Please ask at reception for further details.
Confidentiality is owed equally to all patients regardless of their age, status or mental capacity.
