We ask for information about you so that you can receive the best possible care and treatment. We keep this information, together with details of your care, to ensure that your doctor or nurse has accurate and up-to-date information which may be needed if we see you again.
We only use or pass on information about you to people who have a genuine need for it in connection with your medical care. Where we can, we will remove details that idenity you as an individual.
Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to maintain the highest level of confidentiality about patient information. As a practice we are registered under the Data Protection Act.
For further information about how your information is kept and used, please ask to speak to the receptionist or refer to the leaflets held in Reception.
