What information we hold about you

We ask you for information about yourself so that we can give you appropriate care and treatment. This information is kept together with details of the care you have received because it may be needed if we see you again.

What we use it for

We may use this information for reasons other than assisting your healthcare and treatment. For example looking at issues of public health or planning our services including:

arrow Preparing statistics on our performance for the NHS and making sure our services meet patientsí needs. The data is made anonymous.
arrow Helping staff review the care they provide to make sure it is of the highest standard.
 
 

Sharing your information with other people

Everyone one working for the NHS has a legal duty to keep your information confidential and anyone who receives that information from us is bound by the same legal duty. Within our Primary Healthcare Team the doctors, nurses and others caring for you use a shared record, but only access the information they need to provide you with care. If you are receiving care from other people as well as the NHS we may need to share information to enable us all to work together for your benefit. We only ever use or pass on information about you if people have a genuine need for it in your interests. Whenever we can we shall remove details that would identify you.

The sharing of some information is strictly controlled by law. So unless there are exceptional circumstances such as when the safety of others is at risk we will not disclose your information to third parties without your permission. We will only give information to your relatives, friends and carers if you want us to. Sometimes the law requires us to report information to appropriate authorities, for example, to notify a birth or to protect the safety of members of the public.

Our aim is to ensure that any records we have about you are accurate, secure, held in confidence and only accessed on a strictly need to know basis.

Information on how your data is shared for the purposes of direct patient care.

As a practice we aim to provide you with the best quality care that is safe and effective. To facilitate that we now work with a wider team to provide a comprehensive range of health related services to you and your family. The practice uses the clinical computer system called SystmOne, which enables your full electronic record to be shared to anyone involved in providing direct care to you, across different healthcare services.

Please read this leaflet on how your data is shared for the purposes of direct patient care.
