We take your right to confidentiality very seriously. However, in order to ensure that you are properly cared for, where necessary we will share information about your treatment with other staff within Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to maintain patient confidentiality and we will treat your medical records accordingly. All Genito-Urinary Medicine (GUM) notes remain in the Manchester Centre for Sexual Health.

Your contact details

We may occasionally need to contact you about your treatment. Please tell the clinic's reception or nurses how you would prefer to be contacted (a mobile number is fine) and keep us informed about any changes to your address or telephone number. The reception staff will check this on each visit to ensure we have your records up to date and improve how we communicate with you about your care.

Data protection act

The Data Protection Act 1998 imposes statutory responsibilities on those who process information about living individuals. Central to the Act is compliance with the eight data protection principles designed to protect the rights of individuals about whom personal data is processed. There is therefore, a need to ensure appropriate security measures are in place to prevent unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure or destruction. The Manchester Centre for Sexual Health works within the Department of Health's policy on confidentiality. No personal information you supply will be passed on to inappropriate agencies or individuals.

Research and audit

Data collected from patients would be used for research purposes after explicit consent from the patients concerned. We constantly try to improve our services using our rolling audit programme. Patient data is used anonymously for such audit purposes.


The Manchester Centre for Sexual Health reserves the right, if it is necessary to make reasonable variations to services available (for example opening times). Please note we do shut the clinic if there is a large influx of patients and the clinic is due to close.
