Consent to speak on behalf of a family member or friend
If a patient rings up to ask a medical question about their partner the receptionist has to check if they have given permission to discuss their health matters with you. If there is nothing on record to give consent then we cannot enter into a converstaion. I realise this can sound silly especially if a husband is ringing up on behalf of their wife to ask a question. However, under the GDPR/DATA PROTECTION ACT then we cannot discuss any matters without the permission of the patient. If we did we would be breaching patient confidentiality as well as legal regulations.
To avoid this if you want to discuss medical matters on behalf of another patient of the surgery, please send me a letter signed by the person giving permission with the details of the person they give permission to discuss their matters.
Thank you - Ian Green - Practice Manager
