Confidentiality & Information Sharing

We respect your right to privacy and undertake to act professionally at all times, including keeping your health information confidential and secure.   If you wish to speak to a member of staff in confidence, please ask.

It is important that the NHS keeps accurate and up-to-date records about your health and treatment so that those treating you can provide the best possible care.   We have a fully computerised medical record system which means information about your healthcare is held on a secure server,  and we are registered under the Data Protection Act.   Any patient data used for statistical purposes is anonymous.  If you are interested in reading more about how your medical record is protected and used, please see our Information Governance Leaflet on “How is my information used ” and Patient Privacy Notice which is also available on the front desk at reception.

Update 23/11/2020

The government has produced a privacy notice specifically for shielded patients. You can access this on the following link:
