The practice complies with data protection and access to medical records legislation. Anything you discuss with any member of this practice will stay confidential. However confidential patient data will be shared within the health care team at the practice, including nursing staff, admin staff, secretaries and receptionists, and with other health care professionals to whom a patient is referred.
There are also a number of data sharing initiatives in place to ensure that if you make and attend an extended hours GP appointment (in the evening or at the weekend) or are seen in the emergency out of hours GP service, those healthcare professionals will have full access to your GP record. Those individuals also have a professional and contractual duty of confidentiality.
We have a range of further information available to help patients understand what happens to their medical record and under what circumstances it can be seen.
