We respect your right to privacy and keep all your health information confidential and secure. However, there will be occasions when the data needs to be used for training purposes or audit, to ensure that patients receive the best possible care, and that services offered by the Practice meet required standards. In these cases, your written consent will be sought with a full explanation of the proposed activity. We use anonymised data when dealing with outside agencies such as the NHS Sheffield. Some information may be shared with other relevant health care agencies when necessary for patient care.
