We are committed to protecting patients’ confidentiality. We cannot provide any information about a patient unless we are given permission from the individual or their next of kin.
We are able to give a basic condition check to the media where a named individual has been identified and the patient or their next of kin has given consent for this information to be released. Requests for condition checks should be made to the Communications Team.
