Information held about you by the practice

In order to manage and plan within the NHS and to provide the best possible standards of health care, it is necessary for us to store information about patients of both an administrative and clinical nature.

We send some basic non-personal information to the Health Authority and other Trusts responsible for patient care.

The data protection act 1998 safeguards the information held about you such that complete confidentiality is preserved in using it to help care for your health.
