Patient Consent to Share Information with Others

Wherever possible, we ask for written consent when you want us to talk to a family member about your health or about you.  You will now need to download and complete a written consent form found by clicking on this link.  This is to protect your confidentiality.  Whilst verbal consent is not wrong and will be accepted if necessary to provide immediate care, it means we do not have an audit trail to evidence when the consent was given.
