All patient information is considered to be confidential and we comply fully with the Data Protection Act 1998 and Caldicott principles.  


All employees in the practice:

  • have access to patient information in relation to their role;
  • have confidentiality clauses in their contracts of employment; and
  • have signed a confidentiality agreement.

All staff members adhere to the Confidentiality: NHS Code of Practice 2003.


Where appropriate, your information may be shared with other parties within the care team.  However, these individuals must be involved in your direct care, and this sharing is based on implied consent. This will be on a “need to know” basis only and to ensure safe and effective care is delivered to you. If you do not wish for your medical information to be shared within the team providing direct care, then you must discuss this with your GP.


Patient information will not be shared outside of the direct care team without consent being sought.  You have the right to refuse to have your information disclosed; however, please note that although this may have an impact on your care, your wishes will be complied with.


There is currently one national data extraction from which patients may wish to “opt out”. Please refer to our section on "Summary Care Record (SCR)" for more information. 


Diabetic Eye Screening


The Practice shares your diabetes related data with the Diabetic Eye Screening Programme operated by Health Intelligence (commissioned by NHS England). This supports your invitation for eye screening (where you are eligible and referred by the Practice) and ongoing care by the screening programme. This data may be shared with any Hospital Eye Services you are under the care of to support further treatment and with other healthcare professionals involved in your care, for example your Diabetologist.
