Here to listen, not to tell
We provide a confidential service to all our patients, including under 16s. This means that you can tell others about this visit, but we won’t. We are here to help and support you with all your physical and mental health needs without prejudice or judgment.
What is Confidentiality?
You can be sure that anything you discuss with any member of this practice -clinicians, receptionists and administrators – will stay confidential.
Even if you are under 16 nothing will be said to anyone – including parents, other family members, care workers or tutors – without your permission. The only reason why we might have to consider passing on confidential information without your permission, would be to protect you or someone else from serious harm. We would always try to discuss this with you first.
If you are being treated elsewhere – for example at a hospital or a young people’s centre – it is best if you allow the doctor or nurse to inform the practice of any treatment you are receiving.
If you have any worries about confidentiality, please feel free to ask a member of our team.
