This means we will be working closely with other practices, voluntary organisations and health and social agencies to provide services to you. During the course of our work we may share your information where it is in the interest of direct patient care. When we do this, we will always ensure that appropriate agreements are in place and staff accessing your information is trained to keep it safe and secure. There may also be occasions where the law requires us to share your information.
