By law patients 12 years and over, who are judged by the GP to be able to make decisions on their own, must agree to the Practice giving out medical information to their parent/guardian.
Patients, who fall into this group and require tests after seeing a GP or Nurse, will be asked for their consent to share medical information with their parent/guardian. This information will be recorded into their records.
