Patient confidentiality

“HERE TO LISTEN NOT TO TELL”

We provide a confidential service to all our patients, including under 16s.  Whilst you can tell others about your visit to the surgery, we can’t without breaking confidence.

The only reason we might have to consider passing on confidential information without your permission would be to protect you or someone else from harm. We would always try to discuss this with you first.  Access to information held in medical records is strictly controlled with levels of access restricted and dependant upon the work that needs to be undertaken.  If you have any worries about confidentiality please feel free to ask a member of staff.
