Sutton Integrated Digital Care Record

October 2015

 

Sutton CCG and the London Borough of Sutton are working together to link your health and social care information to provide you with the best possible care. Viewing your care information in one place means your health and social care professionals can work more efficiently to provide you with the right care.

 

In order to do this they will be taking data from GP Practices in Sutton. They have chosen to use an implicit opt-in model of consent, which means that they will take data from GP Practice unless patients specifically opt-out.

 

We believe our patients have a choice on whether they wish their information to be released to Sutton CCG and Sutton Council and have advertised the fact that this data will be taken on our website and in our practice waiting room for patients. We believe in the OPT-IN form of consent where patients should choose IF they wish their data to be shared, however as Sutton CCG and the council have chosen to use an alternative method, any queries regarding this should be taken up with Sutton CCG directly.

 

Please find below information about the Sutton Integrated Digital Care Record and an opt-out form should our patients wish to opt out of their information being shared.

HSCIC Data Sharing

The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) collects data from many NHS organisations and is going to be taking data from NHS GP Practices. We have been notified that data will be taken from this practice from November 2013. This data is used to help improve services, but does include patient confidential information such as NHS number and postcode.

 

Our patients have a choice on whether they wish their information to be released to the HSCIC, NHS England has stated that the data will be taken unless the patient explicitly states otherwise.

 

Below are the information poster and information sheet provided by NHS England.
