NHS England want to share some of the information held by your GP Practice with other NHS Services to help plan and improve services.
A leaflet has been produced to explain what information they will be collecting and how it will be used and a list of Questions and Answers.
IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR INFORMATION TO BE SHARED THAT IDENTIFIES YOU OUTSIDE YOUR GP SURGERY PLEASE CONTACT THE SURGERY AND LET ONE OF THE RECEPTIONISTS KNOW.
We can then put a code on your records to stop any information being downloaded to HSCIC (Health & Social Care Information Centre). If you have no objections to your information being shared with HSCIC, but you do not wish this information to then be shared (by them) with any other service we can put a code on your records to stop this happening.
This is a new initiative and not the same as the summary care records sharing that we have previously advertised. We need to know whether you have any objections to your records being shared.
