Please read through this form carefully. It provides information about the choices you can make about sharing your health record.
Your health record includes your medical history, details about your medication and any allergies you may have. You can now choose whether to share these full medical details.
We use a secure electronic health records system called SystmOne. With your permission, this system can allow clinicians to share your full record held here with other healthcare services who are providing care for you. These other services will
ask your permission to view your record.
Many organisations use SystmOne including some GP practices, out of hours services, children’s services, community services and some hospitals. Sharing your health record will help us deliver the best level of care for you.
You have two choices which allow you to control how your record is shared. You can change these choices at any time by letting the relevant Practice or Service know.
Please read the rest of the form below and fill in your choices . You may wish to keep a copy of this form, for future reference. Please contact the Patient Experience Team on 0800 279 2535

Please note:if you have previously opted out of sharing your information via the Summary Care Record, you will still need to complete this form with your choices about sharing your health record within SystmOne.
Sharing OUT – This controls whether your information recorded at this
practice or service can be shared with other healthcare services.
Sharing IN – This determines whether or not this practice or service can view information in your record that has been entered by other services
who are providing care for you, or who may provide care for you in the future.
Imagine you’re receiving care from three services:
your GP, a district nurse and a smoking clinic.
You want your GP and District Nurse to share
information with each other and you want both of
them to know your progress at the smoking clinic.
However, you don’t want the smoking clinic to see
any of your other medical information.
Your sharing choices at each practice or service
You can change your choices at any time. Let each practice or service know.
