Disclosure of Patient Information
In accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 everyone working in the NHS has a legal duty to maintain the highest level of confidentiality about patient information. Your medical history is recorded on our computer system and in paper records which are accessed by authorised users only.
Disclosure of identifiable patient information to any outside agencies will only be done after receiving written permission from the patient.
You are entitled to access your medical records. The practice charges a standard fee of £10. Please speak to the practice administrator on 01279 638528 for further information. Requests for medical reports from insurance companies are charged at a different rate.
