Important News Covid-19 Virus

Derby Road site will be operating as an isolation site  from Monday 23rd March. The site will be manned by a full team of staff working via telephone and  e mail. We are also hoping to start using video consultations as well. All patients who need to be seen will be seen at  the Pinewood site where infection control protocols will be followed to prevent the spread of infection including the use of personal protective equipment such as masks, aprons, gloves and goggles. In the possible event that staff are forced to self isolate and / or become unwell , we will re -deploy staff from the Derby Road site as and when required. We hope in this way to preserve a resilient workforce for as long as possible. Any patient attending the Pinewood site will be given instructions to wait in the car park until asked to come into the surgery. ALL patient requests for appointments will continue to be assessed and prioritized by telephone and by e mail.  It is clear to us that many routine procedures and treatments will be delayed as we attempt to meet the needs of our most vulnerable and ill patients. We apologize sincerely for this and ask for the understanding of our patients.

EDSM - Sharing Your Medical Records

Many primary care services use a secure electronic health record system called SystmOne. Your health record held on SystmOne includes your medical history, details about your medication and any allergies you may have.  With your permission, this system can allow clinicians to share your full record held at one service with other healthcare services who are providing care for you. These other services will ask your permission to view your record.
On 19th August 2013 an update was applied to patient records in SystmOne so you can be offered a choice in how your information can be shared.

Every GP practice or service that uses SystmOne and is caring for you will offer you two choices which allow you to control how your record is shared. You can change these choices at any time by letting the relevant practice or service know.

Choice One:
Sharing OUT - This controls whether your information recorded at the practice or service can be shared with other healthcare services.  You may be asked
“Are you happy for your record here to be shared with other services involved in your care?”
If you say yes to this you are making your record available to other services which are actively caring for you.  You will still have to give those services permission to view your record before they can see it./p>

Choice Two:
Sharing IN - This determines whether or not a practice or service can view information in your record that has been entered by other services who are providing care for you, or who may provide care for you in the future.
You may be asked
“Are you happy for your doctor to have access to your records held at other services involved in your care?”

If you say yes to this you are making your record held elsewhere available to this service.  In order for this service to see your record you must have already given the service that holds the record permission to share out.
