Important changes to how your personal medical data will be handled

The government has passed a new law which, for the first time ever, allows the government to extract your personal confidential medical information from our surgery for their own uses. This extraction will occur in Spring 2014, carried out by a government department known as the Health and Social Care Information Centre.

It is important for you to know that the government’s legislation does NOT require the government to obtain your expressed consent for this extraction to occur and the Practice has no power to block the process on your behalf. In 2014 your consent will be assumed and you will be automatically opted in to this data extraction unless you take personal action yourself to express your alternative wish.

You may opt yourself out of the extraction process by giving us your personal written instruction on this matter. This form is available from reception. A separate form must be submitted for each individual patient with parents signing for minors under 16 years of age.

This is separate from the summary care record extraction which is a summary of your patient record that can be made available to NHS healthcare staff in an emergency
