In order for us to provide care for you we need to keep records of your consultations, illnesses, tests and other treatments that have been completed by anyone involved in your health care. This may be a hand written or increasingly a computer record. For any such information we are obliged to comply with the Data Protection Act 1998, this is a role we take very seriously. Everyone working within the NHS has a duty of confidentiality regarding your personal information.
As part of the service we provide and in order to improve the quality of care we offer we may need to share information on our practice activity with various health service bodies e.g. Health Boards and Trusts. Whenever possible we endeavour to supply this in an annonymised form e.g. names and other identifying details are removed.
In certain circumstances this may not be possible. These include when we provide information for Clinical Audit and Research and to satisfy local and national legal requirements e.g notification of death, notification of infectious diseases. Please be assured that anyone who receives information from us has a duty of confidentiality.
Our practice is operated under a contract with Greater Glasgow & Clyde NHS Board. JB Russell House, Gartnavel Royal Hospital Campus,1055 Great Western Road, Glasgow G12 0XH Tel: 0141 201 4444 where further details of primary medical services in the area can be obtained.
