GP's are here to listen, not to tell
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 reason why we might have to consider passing on confidential information without your permission would be to protect you, or someone else, from very serious harm.
We would always try to discuss this with you first.
Childline is here to help anyone under 19 in the UK with any issue they’re going through. Whether it’s something big or small, our trained counsellors are here to support you.
Childline is free, confidential and available any time, day or night. You can talk to us:
