Your Electronic Patient Record & the Sharing of Information
Have you let us know your sharing preferences?
You can read the information leaflet below then let us know your preferences by calling into the practice or ringing reception or you can download the form and send it back to us.
It's your choice if you want to share your records with other NHS service providers.
There are two choices you will be asked to consider:
1. Sharing OUT
This controls whether your information entered at the GP practice is shared with other NHS services.
- Choosing YES: Other NHS services will be able to view the information entered by your GP practice.
- Choosing NO: Other NHS services will NOT be able to view the information entered by your GP practice.
2. Sharing IN
This controls whether information that has been made sharable at other NHS care services can be viewed by the GP and authorised staff
- Choosing YES: Your GP practice will be able to view the information entered by other NHS services
(ie; Community Nursing Team, )
- Choosing NO: Your GP practice will NOT be able to view the information entered by other NHS services.
You can download the Patient's guide and the form to tell us your choice for Record Sharing.
