Medical Records

Data Protection

Relevant information about all of our patients is held on the practice computer system. We are registered under the Data Protection Act and as such all information held by the practice is protected by the Act.

Patients should note that under the Freedom of Information Act, they are not only at liberty to see information held about them by the Practice, but can have access to general practice information.

All patient information is strictly confidential and your permission will be sought to release relevant information to outside agencies, (such as insurance companies) before action is taken.

Please see our Patient Information Leaflets via the following links How We Use Your Health Records and GP Fair Processing Notice

Carers

As discussed in earlier sections, we do need to obtain patients' written permission before we can disclose any information to Carers.  If you have a Carer we will need to know about this and we will ask for your written permission to authorise your Carer to act on your behalf whenever necessary.  This may be for such reasons as ordering repeat prescriptions, or obtaining test results for you, or asking a Doctor to visit you if you become ill.  Of course you can determine the level of disclosure you wish to agree to.
