Care.data Programme

NHS England have set up the care.data programme to enable them to extract information from your electronic medical records with a view to using this data to help plan health and social care in England.

The data will be extracted and linked to your NHS number, date of birth, gender and your postcode, but not your  name.

This will then be stored  in a database at the Health and Social Care Information Centre. It will predominantly be used by NHS England and the local commissioning teams to plan health services.

The information could also potentially be accessed by other organisations outside the NHS (such as for research purposes)  

 

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR INFORMATION TO BE SHARED IN THIS WAY YOU MUST CONTACT THE SURGERY TO OPT OUT

 

Further information is available by following the link or read the patient information leaflet below.

FIT NOTE DATA EXTRACTION AND PUBLICATION

As part of the care.data programme, data regarding fitness to work notes issued from December 2014 onwards will be automatically extracted from your records by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC)

The extraction is intended to allow the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to collect data on fit note usage to inform policy development and evaluate the Fit for Work Service.

The data extracted will be fully anonymised.

The first extraction will occur in February 2016. If you have already opted out of the care.data programme then your information will not be included.

Accessing Your Medical Records Online

 

From the 1st of April 2016 it is possible for you to access parts of your medical record using the online access service.

In order to be given access to your medical records you must apply to the practice completing the documentation available at reception. You will also require 2 forms of identification (including photographic ID such as a passport or drivers’ license)

The practice will then review your records and process your application before enabling the service. This process can take up to 30 days. It is at the discretion of the practice as to whether to allow you access to your medical records.
