Did you know that you are in control of who has access to your health record?
Your health (medical) record contains clinical information about the care you receive from any NHS service.
When you need medical help, it’s essential that any NHS service can securely access your health record. This allows them to have the necessary, complete information about your medical background to help them identify the best way to help you.
The information below will help you to decide about sharing your healthcare record and advise your GP of your decision.
You have the right to change your mind about sharing your healthcare record and advise your GP of your decision.
