Sharing Your Information.
At Milton Abbas Surgery, all patient records are held on our Emis computer system. This allows continuity of note keeping within the surgery and prevents you having to repeat your story when you see another member of the team. Many people assume that if they attend hospital or access out of hours care, staff there will also be able to see the patient record, but this is currently not the case.
In order for us to work more closely with the hospitals, ambulance staff and other healthcare providers, Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group are encouraging all GP practices to move to a single clinical system called SystmOne.
On the 18th September we changed our clinical computerised note keeping system to SystmOne. SystmOne will enables us, with your consent, to share your medical records with those in the NHS Nationally who are involved in your care. As it has been designed to enhance patient care we will automatically ‘opt you in’ to both parts of the scheme.
The new data sharing system will only allow those treating you to access medical records. It does not enable your records to be used for research or other purposes.
Please click here to read more about sharing your medical information. If you would prefer not to have your information shared, please print the information leaflet, complete and return the slip at the bottom of the leaflet to the surgery.
Please remember the system has been designed to enhance patient care and to help clinicians in providing the best possible care they can, for you.
