NHS staff keep records about your health and the care you receive in order to provide a safe and effective health service. Other agencies who are involved in the care given to you will have access to your records too (with minimum information given).
Your information will not be disclosed to third parties without your consent unless it is required by law or the health or safety of others is at risk.
We are one of the Richmond GP practices sharing information with NHS Richmond to help plan and deliver excellent patient care now and in the future.
We use the electronic patient records we hold.
We will not be using personal details, just anonymous information about prescriptions and diagnoses.
Safeguards are in place to keep your data safe in accordance with the Data Protection Act.
