Patford House Partnership uses a clinical computer system called SystmOne to store your medical information. This system is also used by other GP practices, Child Health Services, Community Teams, Hospitals, Out of Hours, Palliative Care Services and other NHS bodies. This means that your information can be shared with other clinicians so that everyone caring for you is fully informed about your medical history, including medication and allergies. Allowing your data to be shared enables you to receive the best possible treatment across the NHS.
You can control how your medical information is shared with other organisations that use this system.
Sharing Out: This controls whether your information stored in the practice can be shared out with other NHS services
Sharing In: This controls whether information made shareable at other NHS care services can be viewed by us, your GP practice
Sharing information can help improve understanding, responses to different treatments and potential solutions.
You have a choice. You have the right to prevent confidential information about you from being shared or used for any other purpose than providing your care, except in special circumstances.If you do not want information that can identify you to be shared outside this practice, please complete the relevant forms held at reception. This will prevent your confidential information being shared other than where necessary by law.
