Consent to Disclose Medical Information
If a relative or Carer is required to have access to your confidential medical information, please complete the form below and send to Central Surgery. It is vitally important that this form is signed by you as the patient and by an independent witness who the consent is not being granted for. If for any reason it is felt the request is suspicious the Practice withholds the right to ask for further information from the patient who the records belong to.
