This practice handles medical records in-line with laws on data protection and confidentiality. We take these obligations to look after your data very seriously.
This does not mean that what you say to a doctor during a consultation is never seen by anyone else. What a doctor or a nurse writes in your notes about the consultation may be read by other members of the wider practice team.
It is also important to understand that we share medical records with those who are involved in providing you with care and treatment. This is beneficial in making sure that other parties, for example clinicians treating you in hospital, have a good knowledge of your medical history. Advances in Information Technology (IT) make this possible in ways that could not have been imagined five or ten years ago.
In some circumstances we will also share medical records for medical research, for example to find out more about why people get ill.
