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, family members, 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.
Consent to share data with a relative/carer
If you would like your information disclosed to a relative or carer then you will need to complete a consent form. These are available via reception. Once completed hand to a receptionist and we can enter your consent and the named person into your records so we can then disclose your clinical details to them.
