PATIENT MEDICAL RECORD
DATA SHARING & CONFIDENTIALITY
Summary Care Records (SCR). The SCR at the moment only holds demographics and basic patient data such as medications and allergies. This information is available to other facilities such as Gloucester Royal Hospital and Out of Hours. The depth of information available on the SCR will grow as the system is developed. It is important for Health Care Professionals to have access to this data.
The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) has been given permission by the NHS to automatically collect data about you from the surgery clinical data system. Note that this is NOT the same as the SCR upload. If you opted out of the SCR, that will not have any effect on the HSCIC data collection.
HCSIC collects your date of birth, NHS Number and gender. It then collects information about family history, diagnosis, referrals, investigations, results and medication. This is then to be used for research purposes, gathering data for public health monitoring etc.
If you wish to prevent your data being used for any of the above purposes, please click below and return to completed form to reception. The Surgery will then mark your notes so that they will not be uploaded.
