Medical Records

ConfidentialityEvery member of the practice team is required to sign a confidentiality agreement, which means they may not divulge information relating to patients to anyone other than medical, nursing or other professional staff who are concerned directly with the care, diagnosis and/or treatment of the patient or other authorised persons.

Kincorth Medical Centre is registered under, and complies with, the Data Protection Act 1998 and The Freedom of Information Act (Scotland) 2002. You have the right under the Data Protection Act to know what information is kept about you and how it is used. You can apply to see that information, including your medical records, whether manual or automated. For further details, ask for an application form at reception or contact the Business Manager. There is a charge for this service.

As part of our contribution and commitment to clinical care, we provide important data on diseases and treatments for research by third parties including academic, patient and commercial organisations. This is always anonymised. If you do not wish information from your notes to be used in this way, please let us know. Sometimes patients' records may also be checked by other healthcare professionals and NHS staff who are under the same strict duty of confidentiality as your usual primary care team members, including RCGP and NHS assessors.


Freedom of Information
