How your Data is Shared

 

We believe our patients should know how their health data is shared in this Camden practice.

 

1:The Summary Care Record – A national initiative to improve the care you receive in an emergency.

 

2:Camden Integrated Digital Record (CIDR) – A local initiative to improve the care Camden residents receive.

 

3:Care.data – A national initiative to improve the quality and safety of NHS services. You can opt out of any of these initiatives by using the appropriate opt-out form.  

 

1:The Summary Care Record

 

The NHS in England has introduced the Summary Care Record, which will be used in emergency care. The record currently contains information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely. Your Summary Care Record will be available to authorised healthcare staff providing your care anywhere in England, but they will ask your permission before they look at it. This means that if you have an accident or become ill, the doctors treating you will have immediate access to important information about your health. To opt-out of the Summary Care Record Complete the opt-out form  in full and hand it in to the surgery. For more in depth information please go to http://systems.hscic.gov.uk/scr/patients  

 

2:Camden Integrated Digital Record (CIDR)

 

NHS Camden CCG are linking health and social care information in Camden to improve the care Camden residents receive.  An example would be: After being discharged from hospital you are sat with your GP who has not yet received your hospital discharge letter. Your GP needs to adjust your medication but needs to see information from your hospital visit first. Your GP asks your permission to view your Camden Integrated Digital Record in order to be able view this information quickly in one place. Whilst there your GP can also ensure that you are receiving all the care you need at home. We will assume that unless you complete the opt out form  and hand it in to the surgery we can access your CIDR records to facilitate your medical care. For more information about CIDR go to the Camden CCG CIDR website CIDR page. 

 

3: Care.Data

 

Better information means better care. Some medications can have negative side effects, such as thalidomide. In order to be able to identify these side effects early, large amounts of data need to be collected. By collecting large amounts of data, research can be done which identifies these links, improving the quality and safety of healthcare given by the NHS. The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), which is part of NHS England, is collecting data to enable quality improvement in healthcare. To opt out of Care. Complete Data opt out form in full and hand it in to the surgery.
