Use of your personal information - your medical record
We ask you for information about you so that you can receive proper care and treatment.
We keep this information, together with details of your care, because it may be needed if we see you again.
You may be receiving care from other people as well as the NHS. We may need to share some information about you so that we can all work together for your benefit. We only ever use, or pass on information about you, if there is a genuine need for that information. Whenever we can, we shall remove personal details. The sharing of some types of very sensitive personal information is strictly controlled by law.
ANYONE WHO RECIEVES INFORMATION FROM US IS ALSO UNDER A LEGAL DUTY TO KEEP IT CONFIDENTIAL.
The following leaflets provide additional information on how we use your information, your right of access and your choices as to how this information is used.
