SHARING YOUR GP RECORD

Sharing your GP record with Other Care Services who look after you

How you can help

 

You might think that your GP’s information system automatically “talks” to other services who might be involved in your care, like the hospital, outpatient clinic or community nurse, but this is currently not the case. In order to improve your care, we are joining up communication between different parts of the health and social care service.

 

How it benefits you

We would like any other service that ”talks” to your GP’s system (SystmOne) to have access to your GP record. This helps it to make better informed decisions about your health care, whilst also saving time, reducing duplication and the likelihood of mistakes. These services include:

 



    • Hospital and outpatient clinics, including those in the community.

    • Emergency and urgent care services, eg Emergency Department and out-of-hours GP services

    • The ambulance service, East Midlands Ambulance Service.

    • The community care teams, including community nurses and matrons, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, podiatrists and specialist nurses.

    • Child health services, such as health visitors, school nurses.

    • Social care services.

    • Mental health services, such as counsellors, psychiatrists and community psychiatric nurses.

    • Other GP surgeries, who you may choose to see outside working hours, eg in the evening or at weekends.



 

So which records do you want to make available for sharing ?

We want to make available for sharing your ENTIRE GP record which includes all your past medical history, medications, allergies, vaccinations and so forth. If there is anything on your record or are unsure about anything you wouldn’t want to share, please contact the surgery to discuss. Any item you do not wish to share can be marked as “private” and will not be shared.

 

Who can see my shared record?

Only those people involved in caring for you and only those you have granted permission have access to your record. Your record will not be viewed by any other party without your permission. They all have a duty to keep your record confidential, unless there is a lawful reason to break it.

 

Can I choose not to have my record made available for sharing ?

Yes you can, although bear in mind that another service will no longer be able to rely on using your shared record to look after you. It is also not always possible to separate out a shared record at a later date if you change your mind.

How do I dissent ?
