We hold your patient records in the strictest confidence, whether they are stored electronic or on paper. We take all reasonable precautions to prevent unauthorised access to your records. Any information that may identify you is only shared with the practice team, or if you are referred to the hospital, to the clinician who will be treating you. In order to share information about you with anyone else, written consent will be required.
All staff undertake mandatory ‘Data Security Awareness Training’ at required intervals and the practice ‘Confidentiality Information Governance Policy’ is updated annually.
