Patient Records

How we use your Records:


• To Provide a good basis for all health decisions made by you and care professionals

• Allow you to work with those providing care

• Make sure your care is safe and effective, and

• Work effectively with others providing you with care


Others may also need to use records about you to:


• check the quality of care (such as clinical audit)

• protect the health of the general public

• keep track of NHS spending

• manage the health service

• help investigate any concerns or complaints you or your family have about your health care

• teach health workers and other healthcare professionals

• help with research


Information may be required for research, auditing and statistical purposes, but in these circumstances the information required will remain anonymous. If you do require any further information in relation to this, please ask to speak to the practice manager.
