You have a right of access to your health records. Please ask at the reception for further details.
Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential.

From the 25th May 2018, the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will update previous Personal Data Protection Laws, to keep pace with an increasingly technological era. The new legislation is designed to give greater protection and rights to individuals concerning their personal data.
Due to privacy and confidentiality laws, we are unable to speak to anyone on a patient's behalf without their consent. This applies to patient's who are aged 16 and over. Should you wish for someone to speak on your behalf regarding your medical care, please either collect a Consent Form from the reception desk or follow the link below and print the same.
