Privacy and Confidentiality

Patient Confidentiality

We are bound by legislation relating to the confidentiality of medical records.

These rules are designed to protect all patients and to prevent the release of your personal information to anyone other than yourself. These rules mean that we cannot divulge any information about you to anyone other than yourself.

If you do wish for us to divulge information about you to a third party then we must have your written consent and authorisation to do so in advance and identifying which information might be released. If you are using an insurance or financial services broker to apply for loans or insurance cover please provide the practice with written consent to speak to the adviser as well as the mortgage/insurance loan company.

Please do not ask us to give you information about anyone else; we are not permitted to do so.
