Freedom Of Information
All information at this practice is held, retained and destroyed in accordance with NHS guidelines. Our commitment to publish information excludes any information which can be legitimately withheld under the exemptions set out in the NHS Openness Code or Freedom of Information Act 2000. Where individual classes are subject to exemptions, the main reasons are, for example, the protection of commercial interests and personal information under the Data Protection Act 1998. This applies to all classes within the publication scheme.
All members of the practice team are bound by the rule of professional confidence to refrain from voluntary disclosure of any information to a third party learned directly or indirectly in the doctor's professional capacity as a registered medical practitioner. This duty of professional confidence extends beyond the patient's death. All staff are issued with and sign a contract which includes a confidentiality statement.
