   Confidentiality, Data Protection and Your Health Records


When you register with us we create a new health record for you and obtain your past health records from your previous GP Practice. We make every effort to keep your information confidential and secure. You have the right to see your health records, though there may be a charge.

The Primary Health Care Team (including doctors, nurses, health visitors, district nurses, midwives, other health professionals, managers and support staff) use your information to provide healthcare and administer the practice. We share information with other people involved in your care, such as hospital doctors. Your medication, allergies and alerts are shared in the NHS Summary Care Record (SCR). For more information about SCR or to opt out, see or call 0300 123 3020.

We also use your information to help us improve the service that we offer and for teaching of healthcare students. We provide information to the NHS for financial and monitoring purposes. Information from health records is sometimes used for approved research purposes.

Data is provided to the NHS service which supports the improvement of health services. For more information see or ask for a leaflet at reception. To opt out please speak to a receptionist.

All telephone calls to and from the practice are recorded and may be monitored for training and quality purposes.
