Definition
The definition of 'Good Care Practice' or GCP, is a written or unwritten 'Code Of Practice' that all 'Professionals' abide by.
The following is an example your 'Doctor' follows.
Example Top
"The practitioner (or advisor, solicitor etc.) should keep a confidence between themselves and the patient (or client), as part of Good Care Practice."
Be Aware Top
You should also 'Be Aware' that there is sometimes an exception to this and sportsmen should keep this in mind when choosing who to talk to.
Exception Top
The exception is "Other than for those who need to know."
Often sportsmen tell me this is a concern. For example, would your 'Club' 'Need To Know'?
Tip: This exception does not apply at 'Athlete Support'.
