Access to Medical Records
We keep information about you for your future care and treatment. We only ever use or pass on information about you if people have a genuine need for it. Whenever we can, we remove details, which identify you.
The sharing of some types of very sensitive personal information is strictly controlled by law. However, sometimes the law requires us to pass on information, for example to notify a birth or an infectious disease. Anyone who receives information from us is also under a legal duty to keep it confidential. The Practice also operates a “Teenage Friendly” Policy.
You have a right to see your medical records. To do this you will need to make a written request. Please ask at reception for the forms you need to complete.
