Confidentiality And Medical Records

You can be assured that anything you discuss with any member of the surgery staff, whether it be with a doctor, nurse or receptionist, will remain confidential. Even if you are under 16, nothing will be said to anyone without your permission. This includes parents, other family members, care workers and teachers.

The only reason we might want to consider passing on confidential information without your permission would be to protect either you or someone else from serious harm. In this situation, we would always try to discuss this with you first.

If you have any worries or queries about confidentiality, please feel free to ask a member of staff. You can submit queries online with our Ask the Practice a Question form.

If you would like to discuss matters of a confidential nature, either with our receptionists or with a member of the dispensary team, we have a side room available in reception for this purpose.
