Sharing Your Medical Record
Increasingly, patient medical data is shared e.g. between GP surgeries, community services - Midwife, Health Visitors and District Nurses; Out of Hours Providers; Hospitals and other secondary care providers in order to give clinicians access to the most up to date patient information.
Your patient information will automatically be available to the local health community to ensure that have quick access to your medication, allergies and problems to optimise your treatment. Only Health Care Professionals with the appropriate roles and rights will be able to view your information.
You can choose whether your confidential patient information is used for research and planning.
