We ask for information about you so that you can receive the best possible care and treatment. We keep this information, together with details of your care, to ensure that your doctor or nurse has accurate and up-to-date information which may be needed if we see you again.
We only use or pass information about you to people who have a genuine need for it in connection with your medical care. Whenever we can we will remove details that identify you as an individual. Everyone working in the NHS has a legal duty to maintain the highest level of confidentiality about patient information.
