eDSM (enhanced data sharing model)
Scarborough Medical Group upgraded to a new patient record sharing system on the 18th November 2013.
This new patient record sharing system will allow patients to decide which information they would like to securely share from their GP record and from other services where you may be receiving NHS care.
How is my decision recorded?
You can decide whether you want to securely share any of your information recorded in the practice with other NHS Services – this is known as ‘sharing out’
You are also able to control whether any information which has been recorded elsewhere can be viewed by your GP – this is known as ‘sharing in’
For more information about information sharing please pick up a leaflet and consent form from reception or download it by clicking here.
FURTHER INFORMATION: The enhanced Data Sharing Model gives more control to the patient for record sharing in line with the NHS Care Record Guarantee. For more information see: http://www.nigb.nhs.uk/pubs/nhscrg.pdf
