All patients are entitled to have their medical information kept private. We take patient confidentiality very seriously at Parkwood Surgery and all of our staff are trained to ensure this is not breached. We will only share your details with other health care professionals for example if we were to refer you on to hospital for a consultation or procedure.
Confidentiality can sometimes cause issues for family members as without the patients consent we will not discuss you with them unless you have provided us with consent to do so. Consent forms can be downloaded from here or by asking our reception staff.
If at any time you think your confidentiality has been breached please let one of our staff know or speak to one of the managers straight away.
