We mainly use your health records within the practice to ensure that clinical staff are able to make the best decisions possible for your health care. In addition, our administrative staff such as medical secretaries and receptionists may need access to your records for things like ongoing referral to specialist treatment, and to provide you with test results. We also may provide information to health care professionals outside the practice such as district nurses, health visitors, and specialists to whom you may have been referred.
If we receive requests from other agencies such as solicitors, insurance companies etc, information will only be provided with your consent.
Please see our leaflet “How We Use Your Health Records” for further information.
