TO CARE WE NEED TO SHARE.
West Lancashire GPs and the local Clinical Commissioning Group working with local NHS care providers to allow doctors and nurses in various care settings, including A&E and out of hours surgeries, to view a limited but vital amount of your information held on a GP practice's computer system.
This will help ensure that:
1 NHS staff treating you have essential information about you
2 This will mean that your doctors and nurses, together with you, will be able to make informed decisions about your care.
Patient safety and confidentiality are two of our most fundamental and important concerns. Patients can choose not to allow a doctor or nurse to see their medical record by saying 'no' when their consent is asked for.
For more information:
Pick up a 'To Care we need to Share' leaflet about sharing and opting out. These are available at the surgery.
A MODERN INFORMATION SERVICE HAS BEEN DEVELOPED BY NHS ENGLAND WHICH WILL MAKE INCREASED USE OF INFORMATION FROM PATIENT MEDICAL RECORDS WITH THE INTENTION OF IMPROVING HEALTH SERVICES.
One of the aims of the new system is to all NHS to make use of the information collected when you visit your doctor. The system complies with strict confidentiality rules and the law.
