The information we hold may be accessed by health care professionals at the practices as part of patient management.
Non-identifiable information may be shared with NHS Leeds, Yorkshire and Humber Regional Health Authority for management of services and Audit purposes. If you do not wish anonymous information about you to be used in such a way, please let us know.
We do not share information with any third party outside the Health Service (eg insurance companies, employers, solicitors) without your explicit written consent.
The reception and administration teams require access to your medical records in order for them to carry out their jobs. These staff members are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as all the medical staff.
When visiting the Practices we please ask that patients do stand back from the reception desk to allow the person in front to speak confidently to the reception staff. Please respect the privacy of the person standing in front of you.
If you do need to speak to a receptionist in private then please ask.
