Quality Assurance and Your Privacy

Doctors in this practice occasionally take part in clinical audits that assist them to improve the quality of care provided to patients.

Clinical audits involve the doctor recording information on the treatment prescribed or recommended to patients with a particular illness.  Your doctor may participate in clinical audits on medicines run by the National Prescribing Service (NPS).  None of the information your doctor records for this clinical audit will identify the patient.  Please be assured by this practice and the NPS that all information collected, used and stored remains anonymous as required under the National Privacy Principles.  If you would like more information, please take a leaflet or ask your doctor.

If you do not wish your anonymous information to be used as part of the NPS clinical audit, please inform reception staff or your doctor
