Image Storage and Retention

Your photographs are confidential documents that form part of your medical records, and will only be viewed by staff involved in your health care. If you have consented to your photographs being used for teaching, then they may be seen by doctors and other healthcare professionals in training.

Photographs taken by Medical Illustration will be stored on our clinical image library, on a secure server. These stored images are managed in line with both local and national policies regarding medical records.
