Your electronic patient record
Today, electronic records are kept in all the places where you receive healthcare. These places can usually only share information from your records by letter, email, fax or phone. At times this may slow down your treatment and means information is hard to access.
Now clinical computer systems are set up to enable other healthcare providers involved in your care to share your full patient record electronically, with your consent. This could include diabetic services, district nurses, podiatry, heart failure nurses etc. These services will ask your permission to view your record.
Filey Surgery have set our system NOT to share out data until you have consented to your records being shareable, but have set the system to an “implied” share in from other organisations.
Further information about the options available for sharing your electronic record are described in a leaflet available from Reception.
