We will respect patients’ confidentiality at all times. You will be treated with dignity, courtesy and respect, irrespective of your ethnic origin, religious beliefs, sex or sexuality or the nature of your health problem. We expect to be treated the same way.
The practice complies with Data Protection and Access to Medical Records legislation. However, information about you will be shared with colleagues to provide further medical treatment to you, when we have a duty to others e.g. in child protection cases or if a court of law orders us to do so.
You can find out more about confidentiality when using the NHS on the NHSInform web site.
