Electronic records are kept in all the places where you receive healthcare. These places can usually only share information from your records by letter, email, fax or phone. At times this can slow down your treatment and mean information is hard to access.
The practice uses a clinical computer system called SystmOne to record patient information securely. This information can then be shared with other clinicians and healthcare services so that everyone caring for you is informed about your medical history, including medication and allergies.
You can choose whether or not to share your electronic record with other care services. You can inform the practice of your wishes in person, over the telephone or by completing and returning a consent form (see below).

Risk Profiling: How your NHS records are used- Privacy Notice
This practice is taking part in a new NHS service that helps your family doctor (GP) to spot whether you need more help to manage your health. The service is called ‘risk profiling’.
Using information from your health records, a secure NHS computer system will look at any recent treatments you have had in hospital or at this surgery, and any existing health conditions that you have, and alert your doctor to the likelihood of a possible future hospital admission.
The clinical team at the surgery will use the information to help you get early care and treatment where it is needed. The information will only be held on existing clinical IT systems and will only be seen by qualified health workers involved in your care. NHS security systems will protect your health information and patient confidentiality at all times.
If you don’t want your information being used in this way please write to -
