Your Electronic Health Record
For a number of years, work has been ongoing to improve the way that medical records are made available to treating clinicians. Our main computer system is called SystmOne, which has the advantage of enabling information to be shared between certain health professionals.
Your electronic health record contains lots of information about you, including your medical history, the types of medication you take, any allergies you have and demographic information like your home address and your next of kin. In many cases, particularly for patients with complex conditions, the shared record plays a vital role in delivering the best care. Health and social care professionals can ensure a coordinated care response, taking into account all aspects of a person’s physical and mental health.
You have choices about whether or not information is available to other providers who care for you.
Care Service that could access patients records:
- GP Surgeries
- Community Services such as District Nurses, Rehabilitation Centres
- Child health services
- Urgent care organisations such as Minor Injury Units and Out of Hours Services
- Community Hospitals
- Accident and Emergency Departments
To provide the best care, your electronic health record will be made available to other services involved in
your care. Until you are registered at one of the care services, no information about you will be shared to them.
