Your doctor and other health professionals caring for you need to collect, hold and use information about you. Your records are used to help us arrange the care you receive.

All our staff have a legal duty to respect your confidentiality. We will not disclose your information to third parties without your permission unless there are exceptional circumstances, such as when the health or safety of others is at risk, or when the law requires information to be passed on.

For more information ask reception for a copy of the leaflet ‘The Information We Hold About You’ or call PALS on 0800 587 8078 (weekdays 9am to 5pm).
