How we use your information
Medical confidentiality is the cornerstone of trust between doctor and patient and we keep your records secure and confidential.
For your direct care either from the practice or within the NHS hospital service we will pass on only relevant clinical information to other professional staff involved in your direct care.
Only when there is a legal basis for the transfer of data we may pass limited and relevant information to other NHS organisations to improve efficient management of the NHS or to aid medical research.
General Data Protection Regulations (25th May 2018)
This is a new law that determines how your personal data is processed.
For further information please ask for a leaflet at reception or contact the Practice Manager for a copy of our full Privacy Statement.
