We ask you for personal information so that you can receive appropriate care and treatment. This information is recorded on computer and we are registered under the Data Protection Act.
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 practice team.
Likewise, you may be receiving care from other providers as well as the NHS. So that we can all work for your benefit, we may need to share some information about you. We only ever use or pass on information about you to other parties that have a genuine need to know and it is in your best interest to do so.
