We provide a confidential service to all our patients, including under 16's. This means that you can tell others about your appointments but we won't. 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 our utmost to discuss this with you first. If you are being treated elsewhere e.g. at a hospital or family planning clinic, it is best if you allow your doctor or nurse to inform the Practice of any treatment you are receiving. If you have any worries about confidentiality, please feel free to ask a member of staff.
