Information on dealing with Westridge Medical without revealing your identity.

Dealing with us Anonymously or using a Pseudonym

Patients of Westridge Medical have the right to deal with the Practice either anonymously (no identity recorded) or by using a pseudonym (fictitious name), if it is practical and does not infringe on legal requirements to do so.

To make a well informed medical diagnosis, GPs require a patients medical history. To prescribe medication, they require a patients identity to be confirmed. Please note that should you choose to deal with the Practice anonymously or by using a pseudonym your healthcare outcomes may be adversely affected.

We would also like to make our patients aware that legally GPs are required to report communicable diseases and instances of suspected child abuse.

Enquires of a general nature can be made anonymously or by using a pseudonym eg. vaccinations, mental health or services offered by the Practice.
