We will respect patients’ confidentiality at all times. You will be treated with dignity; courtesy and respect, irrespective of your ethnic origin, religious beliefs, sex or sexuality or the nature of your health problem. We expect to be treated in the same way.
The practice complies with Data Protection and Access to Medical Records legislation. However, information about you will be shared with colleagues to provide further medical treatment to you, when we have a duty to others e.g. in child protection cases or if a court of law orders us to do so.

Getting it right for every child
If we think we should tell someone about your child – perhaps telling the nursery how he or she is developing – then we will check with you first.
The only times that we might not be able to ask your permission first is if we are worried about your child’s safety and have to do something quickly.
