We adhere to high standards of confidentiality as laid down by the Data Protection Act 1998, NHS Caldicott Principles and the Health and Social Care Act 2001.
We ask you for personal information so that you can receive appropriate care and treatment. This information is recorded in manual records and on computer. We 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.
