We provide a confidential service to all our patients, including under 16s.
All information held by this practice is strictly confidential: from the most sensitive diagnosis, to the fact of having visited the surgery or being registered at the practice. Reception staff have particular problems when faced with members of the public who want information about family members or friends. This means that you can tell others about a visit to the surgery, but we won’t. The only reason we might have to consider passing on confidential information without your permission, would be to protect you or someone else from very serious harm. We would always try to discuss this with you first.
If you have any worries about confidentiality please feel free to ask a member of staff.
