Data Extractions

Summary Care Record

Enables clinicians from anywhere in the UK to access parts of your medical records (allergies, medication and adverse reactions) so you can receive optimum treatment if you are taken poorly and cannot attend your usual GP.

The consulting clinician will always ask for your permission to view your records and when this happens audits and alerts are generated.  From mid-April 2017 you will be able to review when and why your care record has been viewed by a healthcare organisation outside of Abbottswood Medical Centre via your online access login.

For further information visit www.nhscarerecords.co.uk .  If after reading this you would like to opt out, please complete the SCR opt out form and return to us for updating your records.


Data extraction from your medical records to provide better care(care.data)

This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information.

This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify 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 read the below leaflet on “ How information about you helps us to provide better care ”.
