Data sharing (SCR, SHCR, Care.data)

Data sharing systems (SCR, SHCR, Care.data)

Most clinical records are now electronic, and this has enabled sharing of information between clinicians.  Obviously there are clinicla governance policies to apply, but in the interest of patient care most people would want there records to accessible in an emergency.  For more information about the data sharing systems please see below.

Summary Care Record

Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

 How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.

Stockport Health Care Record (SHCR) (formerly Stockport Health Record)

Stockport Health Record was a local solution to sharing records between health professionals in Stockport (eg Out of hours services and A&E) before the creation of the Summary Care Record.

 

Stockport Health Record goals were to:

  •   give the people taking care of you access to the right information at the right time
  •   help NHS staff make better informed decisions about your treatment
  •   only be seen by the doctor caring for you, and with your permission.

In 2014 the Stockport Health Record is being relaunched as the Stockport Health Care Record, aiming to  ensure all health and social care professionals involved in a patients' care have timely access to the right information (the SHCR is different to the SCR as it is only for residents in Stockport)

 

Your integrated health record includes information like test results, medications, allergies and social care or mental health information relevant to your medical care, and will only be accessed by health and social care professionals involved in your care. They will only have access to information relevant to their input in your care if you have given your consent. Information can only be accessed within a secure NHS network.

 

Your information will only be viewed at the point of care with your consent, therefore you are in control.

 

You will be asked for your consent each and every time your care professional wants to access your integrated health record. You can say “Yes” or “No”. You can also contact a member of staff if you change your mind at any point.

 

You have a choice

If you do not want other health or social care professionals in Stockport to access your records you can 'opt out' (ie you data will NOT be shared with other parts of the NHS) by completing the form below.

Care.data

Information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care.

It is important that we, the NHS, can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. We would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help us provide a full picture. This will allow us to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so we can see what has worked best.

Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or download the opt out form below, complete it and return it to the practice

We need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.
