 Confidentiality

Even if you are under 16 you still have the same rights to confidentiality as anyone else.

Our doctor and nurses have to follow very strict rules on confidentiality and the law says  we have to keep all patients records and information completely private.

In exceptional circumstances, for example when a doctor or nurse thinks you might be in serious danger, it might be necessary to pass information on but, even if wed do, we will usually talk to you first before we tell anyone else. This applies to everyone, no matter what age you are.
