We ask you for personal information so that you can receive appropriate care and treatment. This information is recorded on computer and we are registered under the Data Protection Act. The practice will ensure that patient confidentiality is maintained at all times by all members of the practice team. However, for the effective functioning of a multi-disciplinary team it is sometimes necessary that medical information about you is shared between members of the team. Prescriptions and some of the consultation records are run purely on computer. This enables us to analyse various aspects of health care and to produce an annual practice report.
Access To Medical Records
You have a right of access to your medical records. If you wish to see your records please put your request in writing to the practice manager. We are allowed by law to charge a fee to cover our administration costs.
