How we use your records to help you:

Your records are used to guide healthcare professionals in the care you need and administer the care you receive.

We routinely record calls to the service to support on going training, development of the service, and to ensure safety and quality.

 

How we keep your records confidential:

Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential. We may need to share some information about you so we can all work together for your benefit but we will only pass on information about you if there is a genuine need to do so.

We are also required by law to report certain information to the appropriate authorities’.
