We will maintain confidentiality within the practice team. There are times when we have to pass on information about you to other people or organisations such as hospitals, social services or the Health Authority. This is always done confidentially or by removing your identifying details when they are not essential.

Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to maintain the highest level of confidentiality about patient information. Disclosure of patient identifiable information to any other outside agency will only be done after receiving written permission from the patient.
