We will not disclose medical records to your GP or contact them without your permission, other than when needed for emergency medical care or safeguarding concerns. We will however inform your GP of a positive STI result in the event that we cannot reach you after several attempts. All clinical professionals are bound by the code of confidentiality and data protection laws.
Select MSI Reproductive Choices team members will have access to your information to carry out their job, to assist in the delivery of healthcare treatment, and we may need to share some of your information with other healthcare providers for your care. Also to gain NHS funding or to understand your medical history.
We may also engage with external organisations to process information on our behalf such as our professional file archiving and laboratory partners. We will always ensure that our contract with them sets out our expectations and requirements as to how they should handle your information. Where possible we will keep the sharing of your information to a minimum.
We may have to disclose your details, where required by the law, to the police, regulatory bodies or legal advisors, social care or emergency services, where it concerns your vital interests.
We will never sell your information to third parties.
