Confidentiality And Access To Records

All the staff and doctors of Crossroads Medical Practice are bound to maintain patient confidentiality at all times. Any breach of confidentiality will be treated very seriously and could lead to disciplinary action for the staff concerned.

Any medical information relating to yourself will not be divulged to any member of your family or any other agency without your written consent.

Information about patients is held on computer and in written medical records. The practice is registered with the Data Protection Registrar.

In accordance with the Data Protection Act (1998) and the Access To Medical Records Act (1990), patients may request to see, or to have copies of, their medical records or to have them released to a third party. Requests should be made in writing and there may be an administration charge.

You can also make an appointment with the GP to have your records explained to you - please tell the receptionist that this is the reason for the appointment.

Information about patients is not released without consent unless there is a legal obligation to do so.
