Confidentiality & Medical Records

The practice complies with data protection and access to medical records legislation. Identifiable information about you will be shared with others in the following circumstances:

  • To provide further medical treatment for you e.g. from district nurses and hospital services. Certain clinical priority information informs your Emergency Care Summary which is available to the local Out of Hours GP, for example, in case of emergencies.
  • To help you get other services e.g. from the social work department. This requires your consent.
  • When we have a duty to others e.g. in child protection cases.
  • Anonymised patient information will also be used at local and national level for management and audit purposes and to help the Health Board and Government plan services.

    If you do not wish anonymous information about you to be used in such a way, please let us know.  You have the right to know what information we hold about you.

Reception and administration staff require access to your medical records in order to do their jobs. These members of staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the medical staff.
