Sensitive patients

Supporting GP practices with a patient(s) going through adoption/fostering, who’re part of the Witness Protection Scheme (WPS) or are transgender.

GP practices will encounter cases which require a level of sensitivity, such as the ones above.

It’s important that in cases where a person requires their identity to be managed carefully information is shared closely and only where required.

If such cases arise, please liaise with your local Practitioner services office who’ll provide advice on the necessary processes.
