Abbey House Medical Centre wants to ensure the highest standard of medical care for our patients. We understand that a General Practice is a trusted community governed by an ethic of privacy and confidentiality. Our practices are consistent with the Medical Council guidelines and the privacy principles of the Data Protection Acts. We see our patients consent as being the key factor in dealing with their health information. This notice is about making consent meaningful by advising you of our policies and practices on dealing with your medical information.
This list is not exhaustive and provides examples of tasks completed by our Practice Staff.
We may need to pass some of this information to other health and social care professionals in order to provide you with the treatment and services you need. These other professionals are also legally bound to treat your information with the same duty of care and confidence that we do.
