Derbyshire Health and Social Care Initiative
We need to check if you wish to take part in the local ‘Derbyshire Health and Social Care Community’ local sharing initiative.
The sharing initiative will allow doctors, nurses and other register health and social care professionals locally to provide better care and work more effectively and efficiently if relevant information about you can be shared among local agencies providing your care. Sharing your records means health and social care workers have your most recent up to date information held on the GP record. It also means you don’t have to repeatedly provide the same facts, have unnecessary tests and it may prevent you been given medicine that you are allergic to.
The professionals caring for you will always seek you consent before they open your records holding your information.
If you do NOT wish to take part in the ‘Derbyshire Health and Social Care’ local sharing initiative, doctors , nurses and other registered health and social care professionals will NOT be able to access your information held in the GP record in an emergency situation. For example if you are unconscious and unable to give consent.
