Confidentiality Statement

The Practice is committed to adhering to the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998.

The Practice is the Data Controller and is responsible for ensuring the safety and security of the information it holds about you.

However, on occasion, information may need to be shared with other staff or organisations in order to help them decide the best care and treatment available.

Other organisations may include District Nurses, Health Visitors etc. or other service providers commissioned and appointed by the PCT that are committed to the improvement of health outcomes for patients.

When members of staff from different organisations are involved they are still bound by the same confidentiality rules that apply to the staff at your local practice.

Should you wish to opt out of this, please contact the surgery.

For further information, please see our practice information sheet – EDSM Practice Information Sheet
