We take patient confidentiality very seriously and handle any information you give us with sensitivity and care. All patient records, paper and computer-based, are confidential. This means the information is only available to those directly involved in your care.
Sometimes the law requires us to pass on information, for example on infectious diseases, so health agencies can monitor their prevalence. We will pass on specific information only if there is a clinical need.
Anyone who receives information from us also has a legal duty to keep it confidential. To find out more about the rules we must follow you can request a copy of our Data Protection Policy. By law you have a right to access your patient records.
