Sharing Your Health Record

What is your health record? Your health record contains all the clinical information about the care you receive. When you need medical assistance it is essential that clinicians can securely access your health record. This allows them to have the necessary information about your medical background to help them identify the best way to help you. This information may include your medical history, medications and allergies. Why is sharing important? Health records about you can be held in various places, including your GP practice and any hospital where you have had treatment. Sharing your health record will ensure you receive the best possible care and treatment wherever you are and whenever you need it. Choosing not to share your health record could have an impact on the future care and treatment you receive. Below are some examples of how sharing your health record can benefit you: • Sharing your contact details - Ensures you receive any medical appointments without delay • Sharing your medical history - Ensures emergency services accurately assess you if needed • Sharing your medication list - Ensures that you receive the most appropriate medication • Sharing your allergies - Prevents you being given something to which you are allergic • Sharing your test results - Prevents further unnecessary tests being required Is my health record secure? Yes. There are safeguards in place to make sure only organisations you have authorised to view your records can do so. Can I decide who I share my health record with? Yes. You decide who has access to your health record. For your health record to be shared between organisations that provide care to you, your consent must be gained. Can I change my mind? Yes. You can change your mind at any time about sharing your health record, please just let us know. Can someone else consent on my behalf? If you do not have capacity to consent and have a Lasting Power of Attorney, they may consent on your behalf. If you do not have a Lasting Power of Attorney, then a decision in best interests can be made by those caring for you. What about parental responsibility? If you have parental responsibility and your child is not able to make an informed decision for themselves, then you can make a decision about information sharing on behalf of your child. If your child is competent then this must be their decision. What is your Summary Care Record? Your Summary Care Record contains basic information including your contact details, NHS number, medications and allergies. This can be viewed by GP practices, Hospitals and the Emergency Services. If you do not want a Summary Care Record, please ask your GP practice for the appropriate opt out form. With your consent, additional information can be added to create an Enhanced Summary Care Record. This could include your care plans which will help ensure that you receive the appropriate care in the future. How is my personal information protected? College Lane Surgery will always protect your personal information.
