Data Protection

Patients may have access to their health records on payment of the current statutory fee. Other healthcare professionals who would require access to these records as part of providing treatment, will also be able to access them.

Any other requests for access to a patient’s health records must be accompanied by a signed letter of consent from the patient otherwise we cannot release records.

Patient records in this practice are sometimes examined for the purpose of medical audit. If you have any objection to this please notify the practice manager.

Patient information is stored on the computer. This is accessed only by Springfield House staff and all records are subject to the Data Protection Act.
