If you require access to your own medical records, please discuss this with the Practice Manager, where arrangements can be made.
Summary Care Record
The Summary Care Record is an electronic record which will give healthcare staff faster, easier access to essential information above you, (this includes any medications you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines that you have had) to help provide you with safe treatment when you need care in an emergency or when your GP Practice is closed. You can choose not to have a Summary Care Record, in which case you would need to fill an opt out form which is available by request at the main reception or download the patient leaflet and consent form shown below. After completion of the consent form, please hand it to a Receptionist at the Main Reception Desk.

Sharing your Detailed Care Record
From time to time it is helpful for us to be able to share information abut your health and care requirements with other health organisations that are responsible for your health care. Across Nottinghamshire we are introducing a new system called MIG (Medical Interoperability Gateway) which will enable us to share relevant medical information, on a view only basis, with clinicians in other healthcare organisations who are involved with your care; for example the NEMS Out of Hours team and local A&E departments.
Sharing of information in this way is designed to enusre that the healtcare professional looking after you has the most relevant information to enable them to provide you with the most appropriate care. The type of information shared is restricted and includes a summary of current problems, current medication, allergies, recent tests, diagnosis, procedures, investigations, risks and warnings - all this information is currently held in your GP system record.
Whenever a clinician from another healtcare organisation wishes to view your record they will always seek your permission before doing so: if you say "NO" they will not be able to see any information. We have automatically set up the sharing facility to allow your information to be shared. However, if you do not wish us to share your information in this way please let us know and we will ensure that your information is not shared.
A patient information leaflet and to give consent (consent forms) are available by request at the main reception. Further information is available at www.nhs.uk/caredata or by viewing an explanatory video on https://vimeo.com/124915322 or download the patient leaflet and consent form shown below. After completion of the consent form, please hand it to a receptionist at the main reception desk.
