EDSM - Sharing Your Medical Records

The clinical computer system used at St George’s Medical Centre is SystmOne.  It is a system that is used widely in this area and across England.  This system gives us a facility (The Enhanced Data Sharing Model - EDSM) to share your health record with other health providers involved in your care.

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 with other health provider units (for example District nurses). 

Many organisations may 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 completing the consent form

If you have any queries please contact the “Patient Experience Team” (formerly PALS) on 0800 279 2535.

Sharing OUT

This controls whether your information recorded at this practice can be shared with other health care providers.

Sharing IN

This determines whether or not this practice 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 are 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 place would be:-

  • The GP can share information IN and OUT
  • The district nurse can share IN and OUT
  • The smoking clinic can not share IN but can share OUT.

Exceptions

  1. In very exceptional circumstances your information may be shared without your permission - for example if your life is at risk.
  2. A parent can give consent to share a child’s record.  This will be recoded as “Consent Not Asked” and “parental consent give” noted as the reason why the record was shared.

  3. Vaccinations will be shared regardless of whether there is a consent to share or not.

 


Summary Care Record

The Summary Care Record (SCR)  is a national sharing of demographic data such as name and address etc plus current medications and allergies.  This information can be accessed by other health provider units, including hospitals and Out of Hours doctors that may or may not use the same clinical computer system as us.
