We give the highest priority to confidentiality and we are registered under the Data Protection Act with the Office of the Information Commissioner. The Practice will ensure that patient confidentiality is maintained at all times by all members of the Practice team and we do not disclose medical records to anyone outside the Practice without your written consent. Even the fact that you have attended the surgery is regarded as confidential. However, in order that you can receive appropriate treatment and care, it is sometimes necessary that medical information about you is shared with fellow professionals within the multi-disciplinary primary care team (e.g. district nurse or midwife).
