We keep your health information (your NHS care records) on a secure computer system. This means that Doctors, Nurses and other Health Professionals at the practice have the information they need to help them make decisions about your care.
If you consent we can share your health information securely between the NHS services you are registered with, such as different hospital departments. This means that clinical staff caring for you in those different departments can see your health information and are able to provide safer, quicker and better care for you. If there is a particular consultation that you not wish other services to see, you can ask the doctor to keep that private.
If you do not consent, we can not share your health information with the other NHS services providing your care. You will have to ensure that these other services have all important information they may need about you.
