Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential. Your medical records, both written and computerised are kept secure and access restricted to practice members. We only use or pass on any information about you to other health professionals involved directly with your care or with your expressed permission.
Anyone who receives information from us is also under legal duty to keep it confidential. Requests for copies of your medical records or other information about you will only be released to third parties, not involved in your medical care, with your explicit consent, except when not doing so would be deemed to put you or other members of the general public at risk. All records are protected by the Data Protection Act and you may gain access to them by applying to the Practice Manager.
