NEW DATA PROTECTION  LEGALISATION KNOWN AS GDPR TAKES EFFECT FROM 25TH MAY 2018

PLEASE SEE OUR PRIVACY POLICY  AND HOW WE USE YOUR DATA IN PRACTICE POLICIES

 

Confidentiality & Medical Records

The practice complies with data protection and access to medical records legislation. Identifiable information about you will be shared with others in the following circumstances:

  • To provide further medical treatment for you e.g. from district nurses and hospital services. 
  • To help you get other services e.g. from the social work department. This requires your consent.
  • When we have a duty to others e.g. in child protection cases anonymised patient information will also be used at local and national level to help the Health Board and Government plan services e.g. for diabetic care.
  • Your anonymised records may be used for medical research purposes.

If you do not wish anonymous information about you to be used in such a way, please let us know.

Reception and administration staff  require access to your medical records in order to do their jobs. These members of staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the medical staff.
