Sutton Integrated Digital Care Record
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.
