Important Information about Your Health Records
South Worcestershire GP Services are piloting a new range of services which aim to improve access to clinical advice and support. To help these health professionals provide you with advice we will find it very helpful to have access to your GP record.
This is known as data sharing and allows us to deal with you more safely and quickly without having to ask lots of questions.
To do this we process your GP health record through a secure computer system which is hosted by another NHS organisation on a different site to this surgery.
Before your records can be viewed by a health professional outside of your practice, you will be asked to provide consent
If you have any concerns and don’t wish for data on your health record to be used for this purpose then you have the right to opt out of this process. Simply contact a member of the Reception Team and ask to opt out.
