How we Use your Health Information

The practice complies with data protection and access to medical records legislation. Your record is used to provide your doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional with accurate information to assess your health and decide together with you, appropriate care for you. It will be used to ensure:

  • Your care is safe and effective,
  • To provide further medical treatment for you e.g. from district nurses and hospital services.

  • To help you get other services e.g. from the social work department. This requires your consent.

  • When we have a duty to others e.g. in child protection cases anonymised patient information will also be used at local and national level to help the Health Board and Government plan services e.g. for diabetic care. 

Where required your explicit consent will be sought before any such sharing takes place in respect to your confidential or sensitive information. You have the right to withhold consent to share your information but be aware that this may adversely affect the care you receive. Always consult your GP or relevant health professional before deciding to withhold consent to sharing your information, as they will be able to advise you on the possible outcomes of this decision.

If you do not wish anonymous information about you to be used in such a way, please let us know.

Reception and administration staffs require access to your medical records in order to do their jobs. These members of staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the medical staff.


Everyone working for or on behalf of the NHS has a legal duty to protect your confidential information in accordance with the NHS Constitution, Code of Practices, the Data Protection Law and the Common Law duty of Confidentiality.

Much of the information held about you may be confidential, such as records kept by health professionals you are seeing, services you use or treatment you receive.

You have a right to privacy and confidentiality and it is important that these rights are respected

Further Information on sharing your record and opting out

If you would like to know more about how we use your information or if, for any reason, you do not wish to have your information used in any of the ways described, please speak with our Secretary
