Sharing Information

At times we need to share your information with other health professionals so we can all work together for your benefit. We will only ever use or pass on information about you if others involved in your care have a genuine need for it.

We will not disclose your information to third parties without your explicit permission unless there are exceptional circumstances, such as when the health or safety of others is at risk or where the law requires information to be passed on.

Anyone who receives information from us is also under a legal duty to keep it confidential

You have the right to refuse to allow your information to be shared, however this may lead to restrictions in the care you receive including treatment options.

All information is treated in the strictest confidence. All practice staff adhere to recognised standards of confidentiality. A leaflet, fully outlining your patients rights, is available from the Reception Staff.
