Our use of your personal health information is regulated by the Data Protection Act. The Data Protection Act gives you a number of rights in relation to how your personal information is used, including a right to access the information we hold about you. To ensure that you receive the best possible care, there may be occasions where it is important to share this information with other professionals.
