Patient confidentiality

We respect your right to privacy and keep all your health information confidential and secure. It is important that the NHS keeps accurate and up-to-date records about your health and treatment so that those treating you can give you the best possible care.

The people who care for you use your records to:

  • provide a good basis for all health decisions made by you and healthcare professionals
  • allow you to work with those providing care
  • make sure your care is safe and effective
  • 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 a 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 healthcare
  • teach healthcare professionals
  • help with research.
