Any information that we hold on any patient is treated with confidentiality. Infor- mation will not normally be disclosed to other members of the family/friends/carers without your explicit consent. We may need to share your personal information with

other NHS organisations where it would be appropriate for providing you with on-going healthcare.

In some circumstances there are statutory obligations to disclose information to others (such as public health issues, safeguarding concerns) which may not require your

consent. However you will be consulted about these in advance unless there is an over-riding public interest in not doing so.

Please contact the Practice Business Manager for more information or if you have any questions about this.
