Please take the time to look at this page. We hope you will find the websites useful and would welcome any comments or suggestions you may have regarding any other information we could provide.

 

Confidentiality Statement

You can be sure that anything you discuss with any member of this practice – family doctor, nurse or receptionist – will stay confidential.

 

Even if you are under 16 nothing will be said to anyone – including parents, other family member, care workers or tutors – without your permission. The only reason why we might have to consider passing on confidential information without your permission would be to protect you or someone else from serious harm. We would always try to discuss this with you first.

 

If you are being treated elsewhere – for example at a hospital or Brook centre – it is best if you allow the doctor or nurse to inform the practice of any treatment you are receiving.

 

If you have any worries about confidentiality, please feel free to ask a member of staff.
