Your doctor and other health professionals caring for you, keep records about your health and any treatment and care you receive from the National Health Service (NHS). These help ensure that you receive the best possible care from us. They may be written down (manual records), or held on a computer.
We have a comprehensive team of clinical and administrative staff who are trained in the requirements of both the Data Protection Act and NHS Information Governance.
Download this leaflet titled Fair Processing Notice - Your Information, Your Rights if you would like to know more about what information we keep about you, how it is used and how you can gain access to your health records.
If you wish to share your information with other healthcare professionals or decline to share your records, please download and complete our Information Sharing Form - 2019 and return it to the surgery.
