Protecting your information and giving you access
Protecting our patients' confidentiality is something we take very seriously. Everyone working in the NHS has a legal duty to maintain the highest level of confidentiality about patient information. All staff are asked to read and sign a Code of Conduct on confidentiality when they start working with us. We need information about you so that we can provide you with the best possible care and treatment. We keep this information, together with details about your care, in your medical record, to ensure that your doctor or nurse has accurate and up to date information. We only pass this information to other healthcare professionals who have an interest in your health and wellbeing.
Sometimes we are asked to provide information to solicitors and insurance companies. We only do this if we receive your written permission. Increasingly we are asked to participate in audits and research on behalf of the NHS, and wherever possible we remove details that would identify you as an individual. In certain circumstances we are obliged by law to report information to appropriate authorities.
