We respect your right to privacy and keep all your health information confidential and secure. Everyone working in the NHS has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential. It is important that the NHS keeps accurate and up to date records about your health and treatment so that others treating you can give you the best possible advice and care, so we may have to share information about you.
We only ever use or pass on information about you if other allied professionals have a genuine need for it and it is in your interest. Whenever we can we will remove details which identify you.
You have the right to know what information we hold about you and if you would like to see your medical records please contact the Practice Manager who can arrange a mutually convenient appointment.
Stonyhill Medical Practice sometimes has to consent to Audit by the Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group or other outside agencies. This means doctors from outside our practice may need access to medical or computer records of our patients. Medical records may be used for educational purposes. Because of this, we ask patients registering with us to sign a consent form giving permission for their records to be used in this way. This information is completely confidential and does not leave the practice.
