How We Use Your Information 

 

This practice is registered under the Data Protection Act and all staff are bound by strict rules of confidentiality. Clinical information will only be divulged to other healthcare professionals to allow for your continuing treatment and care. We will work on the assumption that you consent to share your information in this way unless and until you tell us differently. You can elect not to have your record shared and information to other third parties will only be released with your written consent, although there are some notable exceptions. For more information go to:

 

www.nhs.uk/caredata.

 

There are currently three types of information sharing:

 

  • Summary Care Record (SCR)

This is intended to support patient care in urgent or emergency care settings. It will store a defined set of key patient data for every patient in England except those who have elected not to have one. It includes details of allergies, current medications and bad reactions to medicines.

 

  • Electronic Data Sharing Model (eDSM)

This allows the sharing of your full electronic record across different NHS Care Providers. It is only available to those NHS services which use the same computer system (in this case SystmOne) and who are directly involved in your care. As mentioned above, we have assumed that you would want us to share your medical record in this way to help facilitate your continuing care, although patients individually may change this should they wish by notifying the practice.

 

  • Care.Data

This refers to the extraction of your personal data from GP records which can be used outside of the NHS. There is a legal requirement on GP Practices set out by the Health and Social Care Act 2012 (HSCA) which allows the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) in certain circumstances to extract confidential information from GP Practices without first seeking patient consent. Patients do have the right to object to any extraction of Personal Confidential Data (PCD) from GP Practices unless there is:

  • A statutory duty to share information
  • A court order
  • An overriding public interest in disclosure

 

The Secretary of State for Health however has given a commitment that for extractions of PCD from GP records that are to be sent to HSCIC, patient objections will be respected. Objections should be lodged with the Practice. (An 'Opt Out' form is available by clicking here)
