Personal Information and Confidentiality of Medical Records
Your personal health information will be held in confidence and will not be disclosed to a third party without your prior consent unless in exceptional circumstances this is felt to be in the public interest.

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
- When we have a duty to others e.g. in child protection cases
