The practice complies with the Data Protection Act (1998).
Our doctors and nursing staff have access to patients’ records for clinical purposes. Other staff members have access on a strict ‘need to know’ basis only. Patient confidentiality is important to us. We do not provide information about a patient to third parties (e.g. employers, private health insurers, etc.) without the patient’s consent.
Under the Data Protection Act you are entitled to access clinical records, or any other personal information held about you. Personal and medical details will only be released to the patient, legal guardian or others with the patient’s written request. Please contact the Practice Manager for further information and costs (if applicable). You can do this by writing to:
