CONFIDENTIALITY AND MEDICAL RECORDS
We ask you for personal information so that you can receive appropriate care and treatment. This information is recorded electronically and we are registered under the Data Protection Act 1998 and comply with the GDPR regulations. 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 and other members of the care team who are involved in a patient's direct care. Where a patient wishes information not to be shared within the team providing direct care, then this must be discussed with a patient's GP.
Please note the Practice's policy is to record telephone calls for the purposes of patient and staff care, security and dispute resolution. Recordings and their use will comply with the Practice's Data Protection registration.
