We can assure you that anything in your medical records and anything that you discuss with our staff is treated as confidential. This means that you can tell others about your visit, but we won’t.
The only reasons why we may pass on confidential information without your permission would be:
to provide other healthcare organisations who are involved in your direct healthcare with the necessary information that they require to be able to effectively and safely assist with your healthcare.
or to protect you, or someone else, from very serious harm. We would always try to discuss this with you first.
If you do not wish us to share your data with other NHS services please let us know (although please be advised that this could affect your healthcare). We will never share your data with any organisation outside of the NHS without your permission.
For detailed information on how we share your data and who we share it with please view our privacy notice.
