Our practice is participating in the NHS national program for IT. This means that when needed, we share a summary of your vital clinical information i.e. medication, allergies, adverse reactions to drugs, with NHS emergency care providers, like A&E, Out of Hours and Walk-in centres. This is to ensure that our patients recieve safer and improved quality of care during urgent or emergency situations.
You should be asked to give your consent each time a member of NHS Staff wishes to access your record, unless you are medically unable to do so. Please do let us know if you would like to opt out from this iniative, as it is assumed that you want your record uploaded to the Central NHS Computer System unless you actively opt out.

If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery.
