How we use personal information in the practice
At The Pendle Medical Partnership we respect your right to privacy, and keep all your health information confidential and secure. It is important that the NHS keeps accurate and up to date records about your health and treatment. This way, those who treat you can give you the best possible advice and care. Your information is only available to those involved in your care and, you should never be asked for personal medical information by anyone not involved in your care. Disclosure of identifiable patient information to any other outside agencies will only be given after receipt of written permission from you, the patient, dated within three months of the request.
You have the right to know what information we hold about you at any time. You will be asked to prove your identity prior to seeing your records.
If you would like to see your records, please contact our Office Manager at our Colne site, Lori Topping. You are also entitled to a copy of your health records but, there will be a charge for administration, again please contact the Office Manager for details.
