* “Common Law Duty of Confidentiality”, common law is not written out in one document like an Act of
Parliament. It is a form of law based on previous court cases decided by judges; hence, it is also referred to as
‘judge-made’ or case law. The law is applied by reference to those previous cases, so common law is also said
to be based on precedent.
The general position is that if information is given in circumstances where it is expected that a duty of
confidence applies, that information cannot normally be disclosed without the information provider’s consent.
In practice, this means that all patient information, whether held on paper, computer, visually or audio
recorded, or held in the memory of the professional, must not normally be disclosed without the consent of the
patient. It is irrelevant how old the patient is or what the state of their mental health is; the duty still applies.
Three circumstances making disclosure of confidential information lawful are:
• where the individual to whom the information relates has consented;
• where disclosure is in the public interest; and
• where there is a legal duty to do so, for example a court order.
