CONSENT TO SHARE
All our patients have a right to confidentiality. This means that we do not share information about you with anyone except, where appropriate, those working for other health and social care organisations involved with your care. However you may wish other members of your family or close friends who might be involved in your care to be able to talk to the staff about your care on your behalf. This can be particularly useful if you find it difficult to get to the GP surgery or communication is difficult for you (such as hearing a voice on the telephone) or if that person helps to care for you. If you would like to give consent for somebody else to have access to your medical records, and speak on your behalf, please ask one of our Reception team for ‘a consent to share’ form.
