Information relating to data sharing
Statement of intent:
New contractual requirements came into force from 1 April 2014 requiring that GP Practices should make available a “statement of intent” in relation to the following IT developments:
Summary Care Record (SCR)
GP to GP Record Transfers (GP2GP)
Patient Online Access to their GP medical record
The same contractual obligations require that we have a “statement of intent” regarding these developments in place and publicised by 30 September 2014. All three of the above systems are currently LIVE at this practice.
Listed below are the organisations we are required to share data with along with the purpose and details of what information is shared. For each one you will find information about each organisation and, where applicable, details of how you may opt out from having your personal data shared.
|A Summary Care Record is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had. Having this information stored in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed|
HSCIC collect data for various reasons including the planning, management and analysis of NHS services and patient conditions. They also share data for the purpose of research. Please read the FAQ leaflet for more information.
NHS data sharing
| || ||GP2GP electronic transfer of records. GP practices hold copies of your patient record electronically. When registering as a patient, where possible, your patient record will be transferred electronically between practices.|
| ||Patient Access. Online access to medical records and services. NHS England requires we offer patients the ability to access appointment booking, repeat prescriptions, allergies and adverse reactions online (or to have published plans in place to do so by 31st Mar 2015). We already offer all these services. |
National Data Opt out
In May 2018, the strict rules about how this data can and cannot be used were strengthened. The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used. For more information click here
