Medical record sharing allows your complete GP records to be made available to authorised healthcare professionals involved in your care. You will always be asked your permission before anyone looks at your shared medical record.
The Care. Data program collects information about you and the care you receive. It links information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, Hospital and community service, to help them provide a full picture of your medical needs and the care you are receiving. This Data is made available to NHS commissioners so that they can design integrated services and is shared with third parties for research purposes
