Privacy and your medical record
All information provided by you to the practice is strictly confidential. Sharing of your health information with other health professionals will always be discussed with you. Your information is stored securely. If you wish to access your health information please discuss this with your doctor. Copies of specialist letters should be requested direct from the specialist concerned.
Because emails are not a secure transmission medium it is possible (although unlikely) that someone else could read it. We are not allowed by regulations to send emails containing health information to you.
