Allowing Others to Speak on Your Behalf

Due to patient confidentiality, we are unable to discuss any aspect of a patient’s medical file with anyone other than the patient, without consent, with the exception of someone holding a Power of Attorney, or the parent of someone under the age of 16.

If you would like to give consent for someone else to be able to discuss your medical records with practice staff, please come along to the surgery to complete a short form. The Care navigators will need to see photographic ID and proof of your address. The form will then be passed to the admin team for processing.

Should your circumstances change, it is your responsibility to keep us informed and updated regarding who can access and discuss specific areas of your medical record as outlined above. The Practice bears no responsibility for any subsequent consequences should these details not be kept up to date.
