FOR ALL PATIENTS REGISTERING WITH THE SURGERY - IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR NHS HEALTH RECORDS.  PLEASE READ - YOU NEED TO MAKE A CHOICE!

Summary Care Record - your emergency care summary

The NHS in England has introduced the Summary Care Record, which is used in emergency care situations. 

The record will contain information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from, and any bad reactions to medicines you have had, to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely.  This information will be available to authorised healthcare staff providing your care anywhere in England. 

We recommend that you read the links below for more detailed information about the summary care record.  You can also get more information by visiting  www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk or by telephoning the helpline on 0300 123 3020.

Enhanced Data Sharing Model (eDSM)

The eDSM is a programme whereby patient records can be shared across other parts of the NHS.

It is different from the ‘summary care records’ which aims to share important data, such as your medication history, sensitivities and allergies.

This new change will mean that subject to your consent, all your GP records, including every recorded consultation, can be shared.  If you agree, your GP records will be shared out into a pool and other units, again with your permission, can view all your clinical records.

For more information on this, please click here to read our leaflet to give you more information as to what this model involves. You will need to also complete the form below. You can change your mind at any point in regards to sharing your records.
