IMPORTANT CHANGES TO YOUR

MEDICAL RECORDS

 

“TO DECIDE HOW YOUR CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

 WILL BE USED AND STORED”

 

Newhall Surgery will be required to supply patients’ personal and confidential medical Information, on a regular and continuous basis, to the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC).

This information will be extracted from the practice in a form that will include your NHS number, date of birth, postcode and gender.

Under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, Newhall Surgery has NO CHOICE but to allow the HSCIC to extract this information. The programme, called care.data, is administered by the HSCIC using software and services provided by a private sector company (ATOS).

The data will be stored on HSCIC national servers and not on GP systems. The HSCIC will administer the data, and states it intends to use it “for planning health services and for research”.

This is known as “secondary uses” of your medical records.

Once the data has been extracted, Newhall Surgery is no longer the data controller for that information, and cannot control or protect in any way how that information is used, shared or who has access to it.

The HSCIC WILL BE the data controller for your uploaded information and will have total control over it.

Although Newhall Surgery cannot object to this information leaving the practice, YOU CAN. Individual patients and their families can instruct Newhall Surgery to prohibit the transfer of your data,

You have the right to opt-out.

Opting-out will have no effect on the medical care that you receive either from Newhall Surgery or from anywhere else within the NHS or private sector.

If you do nothing, i.e. you do not opt out,  then your medical information WILL BE extracted and uploaded to the HSCIC on a continuing basis.

There is a lot of information available about care.data, which you may choose to refer to before you decide on whether you wish to opt out or not. The initial date information was to be uploaded was 07.11.13.  However we are now aware that the date has been extended so please return the opt out form as soon as possible if you want to opt out.

Web-links to this information are included in this factsheet

Noticeboard

SMS texting service roll out. The surgery is pleased to announce an enhancement to its existing text service. As some of you may be aware the surgery has been texting a reminder to patients regarding GP appointments for over a year. This service was well received, however the messages were basic. The surgery now has access to an enhanced system which will text patients a confirmation of an appointment when it has been made, then the day before the appointment the system will send a reminder including the time and date of the appointment. You will now be reminded about appointments not only for the GPs but also nurses and for blood tests. The system will be further enhanced when regular blood test results will be texted to you. The feedback from the new service has been very positive.

If you do not wish your mobile phone number to be used for this purpose please contact the surgery and we can update our records.
