We treat any information you provide to us as confidential. This applies to all members of the practice team from the GPs to the receptionists. They all need access to your medical records in order to do their jobs, and they all have contractual requirements to keep your information secure and confidential.

Even if you are under 16, nothing will be said to anyone, including parents, other family members, care workers or teachers, without your permission.

The only reason why we might want to consider passing on confidential information without your permission would be to protect either you or someone else from serious harm. In this situation, we would always try to discuss this with you first.

If you have any worries or queries about confidentiality, please ask a member of staff.

If you would like to discuss matters of a confidential nature, either with our receptionists or a member of the dispensary team, we have a side room available in reception for this purpose.

The practice complies with all relevant laws and codes of practice.

For full details about the data we collect about you and how it is used, please visit our Privacy Notice.

The NHS may use data from your medical record that has been anonymised so that you cannot be identified from it. This type of data is used for planning and research. You can find out more, including how you can opt-out, on our Data Choices page.
