The first piece of information we prepared was the text of a leaflet for patients on their right to have their personal health information kept private and confidential. This page sets out our objectives for this work.
- To produce high quality information about how personal health information is stored and shared in the NHS, for use throughout the NHS in Scotland.
- To set out people’s rights clearly.
- To make sure the information met the needs of all patients, including those with particular concerns about confidentiality.
