Your Electronic Health Record
How is it Shared?
As a practice we aim to provide you with the best quality care that is safe and effective.
To facilitate that we now work with a wider team to provide a comprehensive range of health related services to you and your family.
The practice now uses a clinical computer system called SystmOne, which can enable your full electronic health record to be shared to professionals involved in providing direct care to you, across different healthcare services.
Many patients are understandably not able to provide a full account of their care history. The shared record means patients do not have to repeat their medical history at every appointment, or make guesses about their previous care.
To provide YOU with the best care, your electronic health record will be made available to other services involved in your care. This information will only be accessed when you visit these services and with your consent. no information about you will be shared prior to this.
A shared record ensures Health or Social care professionals always have the most accurate, up to date information about you.
We strongly advise our patients to carefully read our leaflet ‘How is your Health Record shared?’ to find out what choices you have and for further information.
