Sharing your medical information

your care data

Sharing your medical history to local healthcare professionals

When we refer you to another health professional, such as a hospital Consultant or Physiotherapist we need to give them your medical history so that they are aware of your health and any medication you are taking.

The practice is also part of a local shared record scheme so that if you require urgent out of hours care those health professionals who will care for you can
view your GP health records.

If for any reason you do NOT wish us to share your medical history/records in
this way, please tell the Doctor at time of referral or inform the Healthcare Administration Team.

From May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are in force.
