Confidentiality

All information given during a consultation is regarded as confidential and will not be given to a third party without your consent. Nonetheless, there are rare occasions when a doctor’s duty to the public may outweigh his or her duty of confidentiality to the patient. In such circumstances the General Medical Council lays down clear guidelines regarding the doctor’s legal duties. We are happy to discuss any aspect of your medical care with you, and you have a right in law to see your medical records if you wish.
