Sharing Your Data

Your Health Record and Sharing of Information

Your health record includes your medical history, details about your medication and any allergies you may have. You can now choose whether to share these full medical details.


eDSM - Enhanced Data Sharing Model

We use a secure electronic health records system called SystmOne. With your permission, this system can allow clinicians to share your full record held here with other healthcare services who are providing care for you. These other services will ask your permission to view your record.

sharing data

Many organisations may use SystmOne including some GP practices, out of hours services, children’s services, community services and some hospitals. Sharing your health record will help us deliver the best level of care for you.

You have two choices which allow you to control how your record is shared. You can change these choices at any time by letting the relevant practice or service know.

  1. Sharing OUT - this controls whether your information recorded at this practice can be shared with other healthcare services.
  2. Sharing IN - this determines whether or not we can view information in your record that has been entered by another healthcare service (for example, the Out of Hours Service).

Please download and read the leaflets below and print off and complete the form for your choices. You can then post it back to the Surgery, or bring it to the Reception Team in person.

Please contact the Patient Experience Team on 0800 2792535 or if you have any queries.

Please note: if you have previously opted out of sharing your information via the Summary Care Record, you will still need to complete this form with your choices about sharing your health record within SystmOne.

Summary Care Record

A Summary Care Record is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.  Having this information stored in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.
