Confidentiality and Data Protection
Access to Patient Information
All surgery and attached staff such as health visitors, district nurses and midwives have access to patient information. Medical information will not be disclosed to a third party without patient consent. The Practice complies with the Data Protection Act and the NHS Code of Confidentiality.
Freedom of Information – Publication Scheme
The FOI Act 2000 obliges the practice to produce a publication scheme. A publication scheme is a guide to the classes of information the practice intends to routinely make available. The scheme is available from reception.
