STATEMENT OF INTENT
GP Practices have been given until 31st March 2015 to offer the following services to patients.
Patient access to their GP Record
GP Practices are required to offer the facility for patients to view online, export or print any summary information from their record, for example medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any additional information agreed between the GP and patient.
The Practice intends to provide this service as soon as our Clinical Software provider allows us to.
Summary Care Record
GP Practices are required to provide an automated upload of any changes to a patient’s summary information, at least once every working day, to the Summary Care Record (SCR).
The requirement is based on the current definition of the SCR, i.e. the core SCR record contains medications, allergies and adverse reactions. It is only viewed in emergency or urgent care settings with the explicit consent of the patient unless the patient is unable to give their consent, for example, if they are unconscious.
The Practice already uploads this information on a daily basis. However if you removed your consent by completing a form online (accessible via our website www.parkhousemedicalcentre.com) your information does not get uploaded. The Practice can now also view the information regarding patients that are here temporarily with their consent.

From time to time it is helpful for us to be able to share information about your health and care requirements with other health organisations that are responsible for some of your health care. Across Nottinghamshire we are introducing a new system called MIG (Medical Interoperability Gateway) which will enable us to share relevant medical information, on a view only basis, with clinicians in other healthcare organisations who are involved with your care; for example the NEMS Out of Hours team and local A&E departments.
Sharing of information in this way is designed to ensure that the healthcare professional looking after you has the most relevant information to enable them to provide you with the most appropriate care. The type of information shared is restricted and includes a summary of current problems, current medication, allergies, recent tests, diagnosis, procedures, investigations, risks and warnings – all this information is currently held in your GP system record.
Whenever a clinician from another healthcare organisation wishes to view your record they will always seek your permission before doing so; if you say “NO” they will not be able to see any information. We have automatically set up the sharing facility to allow your information to be shared. However, if you do not wish us to share your information in this way please let us know and we will ensure that your information is not shared.
