Sharing Your Information to Improve your Care

Sharing your Information to improve your care

What we record at the practice:

Healthcare professionals in our practice record information about the care we provide. The type of information that is recorded includes the following:

  • Demographics, e.g. address, telephone number, e-mail, date of birth, gender etc
  • What you tell us when you see us in consultation, e.g. about your physical and psychological health and social circumstances
  • Diagnosis, investigations, treatments, referrals, family background
  • Social information, e.g. housing status, alcohol, smoking status
  • Third part sources, e.g. hospital letters, A&E attendances, relatives, carers, insurance companies, solicitors

What we already share about you:

We share different types of information about our patients. These include:

  • Personal information about you and your illness, when needed for your direct care, e.g. referral to Hospital Consultants, District Nurses, Health Visitors, Midwives, Counsellors, The summary Care Record
  • Patient identifiable information to public health, in order to arrange programs for childhood immunisations, communicable diseases, cervical smears and retinal screening
  • With explicit consent, personal information to other organisations outside the NHS, e.g. insurance companies, benefits agencies
  • Limited information about you, if relevant, to protect you and others, e.g. to social services child protection investigations
  • Under certain acts of parliament to protect you and others e.g. court orders
  • Summary information which is anonymised (cannot identify you) e.g. quality and outcome framework (QOF), medical research and clinical audit

What is changing?

We are proposing to sign up to a new system which will allow health and social care professionals from outside the GP practice directly involved in your care to view the most up-to-date information about you. This allows the professionals caring for you to more fully understand your needs and means you only have to tell your history once.

You will be asked for your consent whenever a professional outside the GP practice wishes to view your record. For further information please see these frequently asked questions or read our privacy notice which gives full details of how we use and share your information.

Initiatives - Your Medical Care Joined Together


Care Data - Important Changes to How Your Information will be Handled

Are you aware that your personal medical information that you share with your GP or other healthcare professional is about to be extracted and stored on a computer outside of the control of this practice where the practice will have no say on who has access to that information?

Your practice has no choice but to allow HSCIC to extract this information and once your data has been extracted, your GP cannot control or protect how that information is used, shared or who has access to it. But you do have a choice: YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT OUT. Please download this Care Data Information Leaflet for more details and an opt-out form.

Risk Profiling and Care Data - Privacy Notice

Risk profiling is a new NHS service that will help your GP spot whether you might need early treatment or care.

Your health information will be profiled in a local NHS data warehouse and the results will be seen only by your GP and health care professionals involved in your care pathway.

NHS security systems will protect the information from beginning to end.

If you have any other concerns about the use of your information, please contact the Practice Manager, Karen Senior on 01226 203420.
