HSIC -Access to medical records

 

Care.data Programme access to your records

Health & Social Care Iinformation Centre

DO YOU WANT HSCIC TO HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS?

NHS England is commissioning a modern data service from the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) on behalf of the entire health and social care system. Known as care.data, this programme will build on the existing data services such as the Hospital Episodes Statistics (HES) service, which was launched in 1989, and expand it to provide linked data, that will eventually cover all care settings, both in and outside of hospital.

The General Practice Extraction Service (GPES) will be used to extract GP data each month. Initially the data will cover the period from April 2013 onwards.  The identifiers to be extracted are: NHS number, date of birth, postcode, and gender which will allow patients’ GP data to be linked to their hospital data. No free text will be extracted, only coded information about referrals, NHS prescriptions and other clinical data. The technical specification of the extract can be found at: http://www.england.nhs.uk/ourwork/tsd/data-info/

IF YOU DO NOT WANT NHS ENGLAND TO EXTRACT INFORMATION FROM YOUR RECORD PLEASE COMPLETE THE OPT-OUT FORM AND SEND IT TO YOUR GP PRACTICE.
