Information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care.
As you may be aware, information about you is already shared with your GP practice when you visit a hospital or walk in centre. In the future, we want to ensure that information from your GP records is available electronically to NHS healthcare providers including hospitals, mental health services, out of hours doctors and ambulance services when they are caring for you.
You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or download the opt out form below, complete it and return it to the practice.
A series of communication information portals have also been created for public and patients to view:
