We ask you for personal information so that you can receive appropriate care and treatment. This information is recorded on computer and we are registered under the Data Protection Act. The practice will ensure that patient confidentiality is maintained at all times by all members of the practice team. However, for the effective functioning of a multi-disciplinary team it is sometimes necessary that medical information about you is shared between members of the team.
If you do not wish for us to share your information with other healthcare professionals then please inform us at the time of your registration.
We will always ask you if you wish for your information to be shared and you can, of course, decline at any time. Please be aware that clinicians can always give you better and more appropriate care if they have full access to your up to date medical records.
