We ask you for information so that you can receive proper care and treatment. We keep this information, together with details of your care because it may be needed if we see you again. We may use information for other reasons, for example to help us protect the health of the public generally and to see that the NHS runs efficiently, planning for the future and training staff. Information may also be needed to help educate tomorrow’s clinical staff and to carry out medical and other health research for the benefit of everyone.

We only ever use or pass on information about you if people have a genuine need for it, in your and everyone's interest. Whenever we can, we shall remove details which identify you. The sharing of some types of sensitive personal information is strictly controlled by law. ANYONE WHO RECEIVES INFORMATION FROM US IS ALSO UNDER A LEGAL DUTY TO KEEP IT CONFIDENTIAL.
