At Bamford Medical, we value the doctor - patient relationship and patient privacy is an important part of this relationship. The Privacy Act 1988 and its amendments formalise the already existing and acknowledged privacy obligations of our practice.

The doctors and staff collect information from patients to ensure that they are able to provide professional care and treatment. We have a legal and ethical duty to protect patient information. Patient information may have to be disclosed to other doctors, nurses, therapists and medical technicians so that patient health care is not compromised.

The doctors in this practice are members of various medical and professional bodies. These organisations provide valuable services to their members and they may require their members to provide information in relation to their medical practice, including patient information.

Patients who wish to look at their information held by this practice or who have other queries about privacy of information are encouraged to discuss these matters with their treating doctor.
