PATIENT CONSENT FORM:
Reception and appointments staff often have husbands, wives, parents, carers etc asking for test results or other information which they cannot disclose without formal consent from the patient.
It often can appear that the staff member is being bureaucratic and unhelpful when they are in actual fact simply complying with NHS and doctor’s recommendations to safeguard the confidentiality of patient information. It is vital that patients have confidence that their health records are safely kept in the strictest confidence and that if information is shared they have given their prior consent to this. If you want to give consent to a named 3rd party please complete this form.
