Keeping information about you confidential

We ask you for information so that you can receive the care and treatment you need. We keep this information, together with details of your care, because it may be needed if we see you again.
Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential. Further information on this subject is available in all outpatient clinic areas.
