Patient confidentiality

All members of staff are duty bound by confidentiality – this includes the temporary hospital doctors, medical students, and clinicians from other services who hold clinics at the practice. Confidentiality is taken very seriously by all members of staff.

We will only share your data with other health care professionals to optimise your care and we only pass on the relevant information.

Everyone who sees a doctor or nurse is entitled to a confidential service regardless of age. However, if you tell us something that makes us think you or someone else may be at risk of serious harm we are obliged to share that information with other health professionals or a social worker.
