Confidentiality & Medical Records
Skerryvore Practice aims to ensure the highest standard of medical care for our patients. To do this we keep records about you, your health and the care we have provided or plan to provide you. Further information is available in our Privacy Notice.
In order to provide for your care, we need to collect and keep information about you and your health on our records. Your information is used to:
- Provide a basis for all health decisions made by care professionals with and for you
- Make sure your care is safe and effective
- Work effectively with others providing you with care
- Send text notifications to you about appointment reminders, invitation to clinics and flu clinics. (You can opt out of the text notification service at any time by phoning the Practice on 01856 888 240)
