Medical Record Sharing
Until recently, GP notes in the UK were held at a patient's practice and not available to anybody outside of that building.
With recent improvements in technology, it is now possible to allow your records to be accessed securely by medical professionals when they see you in other locations. Examples might include the ambulance service, the out of hours GP service, A&E, hospital teams treating you, minor injuries clinics and district nurses.
The majority of practices in Cornwall are in the process of signing up to this sharing model. We think that it is a good idea for patients as it means that those treating you will have access to vital information including medication, allergies, previous medical problems, test results and in certain circumstances, notes from previous consultations.
If you agree to this, you will still be asked before anyone outside the Practice accesses your notes, and this consent will be recorded. The only exception would be in an emergency setting where you couldn't give consent, for example if you were unconscious.
This consent only applies to healthcare professionals directly looking after you. Please note that this is NOT about collecting data for research or marketing, and is NOT part of the government's controversial "Care.Data" scheme.
From the 1st April 2016, we will assume that we have your consent to this type of medical record sharing unless you opt out by completing and returning the form available from your surgery. You can change your mind at any point in the future should you wish to.
If you have would like more information please see www.mullionhealthcentre.co.uk Alternatively please speak to our IT manager Jo Sugrue, on 01326 242106.
