We fully comply with the Data Protection Act 1998. Everyone working in the NHS has a legal duty to maintain the highest level of confidentiality about patient information. All employees have access to this information in relation to their role. Information may be shared, in confidence, with other NHS organisations in the interests of patient care. Disclosure of identifiable patient information to any other outside agencies will only be given after receiving written permission from the patient.
Should a patient require details of his/her medical records, a request form for access is required. Please speak to one of our Receptionists for the Access forms & details of charges.
Our Receptionists are here to help you. They have a busy job to do and will sometimes need to ask you more details about your problems in order to do their work properly. They will always treat what you say in strict confidence.
Freedom of Information
The Practice works within the legislation to provide information to enquiring persons and organisations so that the privacy of our patients is protected.
Violence & Abuse
Violence or abuse against any member of the Practice team will not be tolerated. Staff are entitled to work in a safe environment. Any incidents of violence will be reported to the Police and NHS North Central London and will result in the patient being removed from the Practice list.
