How we use your information

Medical confidentiality is the cornerstone of trust between doctor and patient and we keep your records secure and confidential.

For your direct care either from the practice or within the NHS hospital service
we imply your consent to pass on relevant clinical information to other
professional staff involved in your direct care.

Only when there is a legal basis for the transfer of data, we may pass limited
and relevant information to other NHS organisations to improve the efficient
management of the NHS or to aid medical research.

If you wish to object to the use of your data for these “secondary” uses please
speak to a receptionist.
