How CHELSTON HALL SURGERY uses your information to provide you with healthcare.

We keep medical records confidential and comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

We hold your medical record so that we can provide you with safe care and treatment.

We also use your information so that we can check and review the quality of the care we provide. This helps us to improve our services to you.

We will share relevant information from your medical record with other health or social care staff or organisations when they provide you with care. For example, your GP will share information when they refer you to a specialist in a hospital, or your GP will send details about your prescription to your chosen pharmacy.

Healthcare staff working in A&E and out of hours care will also have access to your information. For example, it is important that staff who are treating you in an emergency know if you have any allergic reactions. This will involve the use of your Summary Care Record [OR Emergency Care Summary / Individual Health Record].

For more information see: https://digital.nhs.uk/summary-care-records or alternatively speak to a member of the Practice Team.

You have the right to object to information being shared for your own care.  If you wish to object to information regarding your care being shared, please contact the surgery.
