Your personal information is recorded in your computerised medical records. We are registered under the Data Protection Act. The practice ensures 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 necessary that medical information is shared between members of the practice team who are also bound by medical confidentiality.
Apart from the staff of the practice, access to patient information will only be divulged after written consent has been obtained from the patient and then only to those named in the consent declaration.
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION - PUBLICATION SCHEME
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 obliges the practice to produce a Publication Scheme. A Publication Scheme is a guide to the ‘classes’ of information the practice intends to routinely make available.
This scheme is available from reception or alternatively it is published on our website.
