Care.data Programme access to your records

Health & Social Care Iinformation Centre

DO YOU WANT HSCIC TO HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS?

NHS England is commissioning a modern data service from the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) on behalf of the entire health and social care system. Known as care.data, this programme will build on the existing data services such as the Hospital Episodes Statistics (HES) service, which was launched in 1989, and expand it to provide linked data, that will eventually cover all care settings, both in and outside of hospital.

The General Practice Extraction Service (GPES) will be used to extract GP data each month. Initially the data will cover the period from April 2013 onwards.  The identifiers to be extracted are: NHS number, date of birth, postcode, and gender which will allow patients’ GP data to be linked to their hospital data. No free text will be extracted, only coded information about referrals, NHS prescriptions and other clinical data. The technical specification of the extract can be found at: http://www.england.nhs.uk/ourwork/tsd/data-info/

IF YOU DO NOT WANT NHS ENGLAND TO EXTRACT INFORMATION FROM YOUR RECORD PLEASE COMPLETE THE OPT-OUT FORM AND SEND IT TO YOUR GP PRACTICE.

Information on Patient Access


NHS 111
111

The NHS 111 service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straightaway to the local service that can help you best. 

You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.  Calls to this number are free from landlines and mobile phones.

Summary Care Record - your emergency care summary
Summary Care Record

The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record, which will be used in emergency care.

To ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely, the record will only contain information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

Your Summary Care Record will only be available to authorised healthcare staff providing your care anywhere in England, but they will have to ask your permission before they look at it. This means that if you have an accident or become ill, the doctors treating you will have immediate access to important information about your health.

As a patient you have a choice:

  • Yes I would like a Summary Care Record – you do not need to do anything and a Summary Care Record will be created for you.

  • No I do not want a Summary Care Record click here for the opt out form. Please print and complete the form and return it to the GP practice.

If you do nothing we will assume that you are happy with these changes and create a Summary Care Record for you. Children under 16 will automatically have a Summary Care Record created for them unless their parent or guardian chooses to opt them out. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 16 and feel that they are old enough to understand, then you should make this information available to them.

You can choose not to have a Summary Care Record and you can change your mind at any time by informing your GP practice in writing. If you choose to opt out of having a Summary Care Record, and then change your mind later, we can still make one for you. You just need to let your GP practice know.


Whatever you decide the NHS will always give you the best possible care.

You can find out more by visiting www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk or telephone the dedicated NHS Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 3020.

More information is available in this summary download - Summary Care Record information [pdf]pdf

Patient Groups at the Addington Medical Centre

We want your ideas and opinions

Are you interested in supporting the practice in delivering/developing patient services?

We are looking for patients from all age groups, social and cultural backgrounds to help us.

We already have an active Patient Participation Group. However we would like to expand on this and gather the views of a wider and larger representation of our practice population.

To facilitate this we would be looking to create an email group whereby we can canvass members without the need for people to attend meetings at the practice.

If you are interested in being involved please pick up a leaflet on Patient and Public Involvement at the reception desk.

More information is available on our Patient Groups page

Referrals for Procedures of Limited Clinical Effectiveness

Some treatments are now described as ‘Procedures of Limited Clinical Effectiveness’, and need to be considered on a case by case basis before they can be provided on the NHS.


If your clinician (usually a GP or consultant) does refer you, they will need to make an application for funding because;
• The effectiveness of the procedure needs to be assessed
• More information about your health might be needed
• This can take four to six weeks
• Your doctor will be informed of the decision and they will pass this on to you
