The structured health and care information in your GP record will initially be shared with other health and care professionals under the national legal basis for sharing health and care data for your direct care.
The scope of the Surrey Care Record programme spans local primary, hospital (acute) and community care, mental health, social care, emergency services and GP out-of-hours care. Over time these partners will securely add more information relating to your health and care to more closely coordinate and improve the services you need.
However, it is important to note that access to your shared information is strictly limited and legally controlled depending on the role of each care professional and what is lawful and appropriate for them to view.
This is overseen through a binding joint information sharing agreement that all parties will sign.
A leading group of clinical and social care professionals within Surrey Heartlands also reviews and approves which particular health and care information should be securely held within the Surrey Care Record, and who can view each piece of information.
In respect of the sensitivity of some of your health and care data, some of your patient information will also not be shared, and this is explained here.
