We collect and hold data about you for the purpose of providing safe and effective health care.
Your information may be shared with our partner organisations to audit services and provide you with better care.
Information sharing is subject to strict agreements on how it is used.
We will only share your information outside of our partner organisations with your consent.*
If you are happy with how we use your information you do not need to do anything.
If you do not want your information used for any purpose beyond providing your care please let us know so we can code your record appropriately.
You can object to sharing information with other health care providers but if this limits your treatment options we will tell you.
Our guiding principle is that we are holding information in the strictest confidence.
For more information about who are our partner organisations and how your data is used please see the privacy notice here.
