Information about your health and care helps us to improve your individual care, speed up diagnosis, plan your local services and research new treatments.
In May 2018, the strict rules about how this data can and cannot be used were strengthened. The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used.
You can choose whether your confidential patient information is used for research and planning.
Sharing Your Information (enhanced Data Sharing Model)
At the Stainland Road Medical Centre we, along with many other surgeries and other health care providers in the area we use a clinical computer system called SystmOne to record your information and medical history. The developer of SystmOne has recently implemented what is known as the Enhanced Data Sharing Model in order for it to meet it’s responsibilities under the NHS Care Records Guarantee and also the Data Protection Act.
The Clinical Commissioning Group have provided information about this change and it is recommended that patients who wish to share their medical record with other healthcare providers read this information fully.

Risk Profiling Enhanced Service
Using information from your health records, a secure NHS computer system will look ay any recent treatments you have had in hospital or at this surgery, and any existing health conditions that you have, and alert your doctor to the likelihood of a possible future hospital admission. The clinical team at the surgery will use the informationto help you get early care and treatment where it is needed.
The information will be seen only by qualified health workers involved in your care. NHS security systems will protect your health information and patient confidentialityat all times.
If you don't want your information being used in this way please contact the surgery.
