New patients: Sharing your health care records and information


Your patient record will be held securely and confidentially on our electronic system.

If you require treatment in another NHS healthcare setting such as an Emergency Department or Minor Injury Unit, those treating you would be better able to give you appropriate care if some of the information from the GP practice were available to them. This information can now be shared electronically (with your permission) via:-

    • Summary Care Record (SCR) - NHS SUMMARY CARE RECORD (used nationally across England)

    • GLOUCESTERSHIRE SHARED HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE INFORMATION (Joining up your information - JUYI) Used locally across Gloucestershire.

      In all cases, the information will be used only by authorised healthcare professionals directly involved in your care. Your permission will be asked before the information is accessed, unless the clinician is unable to ask you and there is a clinical reason for access. Please note that these records are NOT CONNECTED with the Health and Social Care Information Centre project and will be used only for the purpose of enabling informed care to be supplied directly to you as an individual. 

Parents, guardians or someone with power of attorney can ask for people in their care to be opted out, but ultimately it is the GP’s decision whether to share information, or not, because of their duty of care.

If you are caring for someone and feel that they are able to understand, then you should make the information about the different methods of sharing available to them.

Please see below for details of where to find more information about each of the sharing methods:
