Within the confines of the law the service we offer is confidential. Only in exceptional circumstances would we have to breach your confidentiality and this would only ever be done as a last resort. For example, where we have a duty to inform the DVLA or if we think that your behaviour is putting children or vulnerable adults at risk. There may be exceptional cases where we think that you are putting patients at serious risk because of your behaviour. We then have a duty to let the GMC or your employer know about this. This is seldom necessary, however.
Further information on confidentiality can be found on the tab above.
