Medical Records

 

CONFIDENTIALITY

The practice recognises the right of every patient to have information about themselves kept secure and private. Any information given to any member of staff will remain confidential. Normally no information would be disclosed without the patient's permission. The only possible exception to this would be if failing to do so put others at risk.


ACCESS TO YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS

Sometimes officials from Cardiff Local Health Board would like the medical records of a patient for the purpose of post-payment verification of some of the services provided to the patient by the Practice.

Any person given access to your records will be subject a duty of confidentiality. You have a right to object to disclosure and you can obtain from the Practice Manager the identity of such individuals who have access to your medical information.


INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS

The staff at this practice record information about you and your health so that you can receive the right care and treatment. We need to record this information, together with the details of the care you receive, because it may be needed if we see you again.

We may use some of this information for other reasons, for example, to help us to protect the health of the general public generally, to plan for the future, to train staff and to carry out medical and other health research for the benefit of everyone.

Note that you have a right of access to your health records. If at any time you would like to know more, or have any concerns about how we use your information, you can speak to Dr A.K. Sinha.
