SHARING YOUR NHS PATIENT DATA. Information sharing in the NHS is subject to rigorous regulation and governance to ensure your full identifiable and personal medical data is kept confidential and only ever seen by carefully vetted doctors, nurses and administrative staff responsible for overseeing your care. With the development of information technology the NHS will increasingly be sharing key information from your GP medical notes with Out of hours GP Services, Hospital A&E Units, looking after you. Sharing information can improve both the quality and safety of care you received and in some cases can be vital in making life-saving decisions about your treatment. There are currently three different elements of "sharing NHS patient information"
- SCR= The NHS Summary Care Record -
- EDSM= The Enhance Data Sharing Model "SystmOne"
