All patient information is considered to be confidential and we comply fully with the Data Protection Act. All employees have access to this information in relation to their role and have signed a confidentiality agreement. Information may be shared, in confidence with other NHS organisations in the interests of patient care.

The practice will ensure that patient confidentially is maintained at all times by all members of staff.Even if you are under 16, Doctors and Nurses still have to keep anything you tell them private, just as they would for an adult.

We will not discuss any information about you with anyone else, unless you ask us to do so, except in very exceptional circumstances or if your or another person’s safety is at risk. In these exceptional circumstances, you will be kept fully informed.
