Freedom Of Information and Confidentiality

Freedom of Information - Publication Scheme

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 obliges the practice to produce a Publication Scheme. A Publication Scheme is a guide to the 'classes' of information the practice intends to routinely make available. This scheme is available from reception.

Access to Patient Information

The confidentiality of patient information is maintained at all times in accordance with NHS guidelines and all staff are regularly reminded of their responsibilities in this regard.

The same standards of confidentiality are applied to information held on our computer system and, in this respect, we are registered under the Data Protection Act.


Information is available from Chapel Lane Surgery (providing medical services under contract to the NHS) under the Freedom of Information Act model publication scheme. 

Information covered by this scheme is only about the primary, general or personal medical services we provide under contract to the National Health Service.
