The NHS is committed to the delivery of a first class confidential service. This means ensuring that all patient information is processed fairly, lawfully and as transparently as possible so that the public:

  • understand the reasons for processing personal information
  • give their consent for the disclosure and use of personal information
  • gain trust in the way the NHS handles information, and
  • understand their rights to access information held about them.
