Patient Medication Records
Our computer system allows us to keep comprehensive records of the medication we dispense to you.
This is completely confidential and secure and allows us to ensure that we can monitor any drug interactions with the medication you are taking and help us to advise you when we recommend any over the counter medicine.
We comply fully with the Data Protection Act and the NHS code of practice for information governance.
Disclosure of Information
In order to provide proper and safe care, we may need to disclose personal information about you to:
Disclosure will take place on a ‘need-to-know’ basis, so that only those individuals/organisations who need to know in order to provide care for you and for the proper administration of Government (whose personnel are covered by strict confidential rules) will be given the information. Only that information that the recipient needs to know will be disclosed.
In very limited circumstances or when required by law or a court order, personal data may have to be disclosed to a third party not connected with your health care. In all other situations, disclosure that is not covered by this Code of Practice will only occur when we have your specific consent.
Where possible you will be informed of these requests for disclosure.
