Noticeboard

New Data Protection legislation was introduced 25 May 18. To read our GDPR Privacy Notice click below:

Privacy Notice

Confidentiality

confidentialYou can be sure that anything you discuss with any member of this practice - family doctor, nurse or receptionist - will stay confidential. That means nobody else will be told. Even if you are under 16, nothing will be said to anyone - including your parents, other family members, care workers or tutors - unless you give us permission.

If you are being treated somewhere else - for example at a hospital or clinic - it is best if you allow the doctor or nurse there to let us know of any treatment you are receiving so that you can get the best care at both places.

In extremely rare circumstances, we might have to consider passing on confidential information without your permission, to protect you or someone else from serious harm. We would always try to discuss this with you first.

Reception and administration staff require access to your medical records in order to do their jobs. These members of staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the medical staff.

Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 obliges the practice to produce a Publication Scheme, a guide to the 'classes' of information the practice intends to routinely make available. A copy is available in reception.

Access to Records

If you require access to your medical records please contact the practice. To access our practice leaflet, click below:
