Confidentiality and Data Protection
The relationship between team and patient is based on the understanding that any information revealed by the patient will not be divulged to a third party without the patient’s consent.
All our patients have a right to privacy. It is vital that you give full information on the state of your health to ensure that treatment is carried out safely. We are aware of the intensely personal nature of health care and other relevant information and have a practice policy in place to protect this information.
The Practice’s Data Protection Code of Practice provides the required procedures to ensure that we comply with the 1998 Data Protection Act. It is a condition of engagement that everyone at the practice complies with the Code of Practice.
