We ask for information so that you can receive proper care and treatment. You may be receiving care from other people as well as the NHS. By working together for your benefit some information may need to be shared about you. The information about you is only ever passed on in times of genuine need.
Whenever we can, details will be removed which may identify you. The sharing of some types of very sensitive personal information is strictly controlled by law. Anyone who receives information from us is also under a legal duty to maintain confidentiality.
