In almost all circumstances you will be required to give written consent before information is released – such as medical reports for your insurance company, solicitors, GP letters etc. In exceptionally rare circumstances we may be required by law to release your records, for example, if a court order is presented, or there is an imminent risk to the life of yourself, your child or others.
To ensure your privacy, we will not disclose information over the telephone or email unless we are confident we are communicating directly with you. Information will not be disclosed to family and friends unless we have prior written consent and we do not leave messages involving personal data with others.
