Department of Health policy update on confidentiality of sexual health records
Posted on: September 11 2015, 09:47 am

The Department of Health has published an update on the policy and practice on sharing patient information relating to sexually transmitted infections (STIs) obtained in self-referral open-access sexual health services, integrated sexual health services and contraceptive services.

NAT welcomes this update, which confirms that information should not be included in shared patient records without the patientís consent, as we have been asking for clarification on this issue following the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

The note can be accessed at: http://www.bashh.org/documents/Update%20for%20disemmination%20STI%20confidentiality%20Final%20100915.pdf
