GDPR - General Data Protection Regulations

As of 25th May 2018, new data protection regulations are being introduced. Keeping your data safe and secure is our top priority. The changes won't alter the way we use and protect your personal information, but it will make it easier for you to find out how we use it.   There is no action that you need to take. The surgery has produced a 'Privacy Notice' to give you more information on how we use your information. SEE PRACTICE INFORMATION FOR FURTHER DETAILS

As part of the Herts Valley's CCG we are raising awareness of the MY CARE RECORD programme with our patients  see   http://www.mycarerecord.org.uk/   for full information

What is My Care Record?

The people caring for you need access to your health and care record in order to make the best decisions about your diagnosis and treatment. This could include GPs, hospital-based clinicians, nurses, health visitors and social workers.

For this to happen more quickly and to improve the care you receive, a process has been put in place using existing computer systems.

This allows your information to be accessed by health and care clinicians and professionals within local health and care organisations that are providing you with care.

This does not share your record, but provides health and care clinicians and professionals access to view information relevant to your care and treatment.
