This scheme is available from reception.

The Protection and Use of Information We Hold About You

When we ask you for information this is to enable us to give you the best health care and treatment.

When we ask you for information this is to enable us to give you the best health care and treatment.

There are times when we may use some of this information, in an anonymised form (ie no patient names), for other reasons. These are, for example:

  • To help us protect the health of the public
  • The efficient running of the NHS, ie planning for the future
  • Training staff
  • Carrying out medical and other health research approved by the Local Research Ethics Committee

Sometimes the law requires us to pass on information, for example to notify a birth or death.

We would also like you to be aware that:

  • If you should want your relatives or carers to be kept up to date with progress of your treatment please discuss this with the doctor or nurse delivering your care.
  • The NHS Central Register for England and Wales contains basic personal details of all patients registered with a general practitioner.
  • Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential; anyone who receives information from us is also under a legal duty to keep it confidential.
  • You have the right of access to your health records.

For more information, telephone the dedicated NHS Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 3020 or visit the website at www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk, where you can find information in other formats and languages.
