SHARING YOUR GP RECORD

Your GP record contains important information recorded by health workers who are involved in your care.

Sharing your record means all health workers have the necessary information about you to provide the best possible care.

FROM 1st JULY 2015 YOUR RECORD WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE TO OTHER LOCAL CARE PROFESSIONALS

E.G. COMMUNITY NURSES OR HOSPITAL DOCTORS.

For more information, please see the practice website or speak to reception.

However, your record will not be viewed unless you give explicit permission when receiving care.

If you have already told your practice not to share your record, it will not be made available.
