Use and disclosure for non-health reasons

Disclosure of information may only be given in very exceptional circumstances under the Crime and Disorder Act of 1998, to the police, hospital chaplains and the media.

When we have a duty to others [eg in child protection cases].

Anonymised patient information will also be used at local and national level to help the Health Board and Government plan services, e.g. for diabetic care.  If you do NOT wish anonymous information about you to be used in such a way, please let us know.
