How we use medical information to help everyone
Information about you and your medical treatment may be recorded either on paper or in computer files, as part of providing you with health services. This information is needed to give you and others the best possible health care.
We may use some information for other reasons, for example, we are currently involved in some research studies that require anonymous information from patients’ notes. You cannot be identified from this information.
Some research will require your direct involvement, in which case the circumstances will be fully explained to you and your express consent will be requested in advance.
If you do not wish to contribute your information for research, please notify your doctor. If you choose not to contribute your information this will NOT affect your treatment in any way. If you have any questions about research please feel free to ask your doctor.
