Sharing of Information
If there is the need for a clinician to refer patients to specialist clinics, the hospital or other health care providers involved in your care for example social services, it will be necessary to share relevant clinical or confidential information to be able to provide safe and effective treatment. This is always done in the patients best interest and I some circumstances may take place at a multi-disciplinary meeting. All health and care providers know that medical information is sensitive, personal and should only be accessed when appropriate.
