In line with Department of Health guidelines, the Caldicott report and Data Protection Act we wish to advise you how we handle information held on patients. Everyone in the NHS has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential. You have a right to access your health records.
All our staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the Doctors and Nurses. We can only give any medical information including test results to the patient themselves unless we have in writing permission to do otherwise.
