Wherever you visit an NHS service in England a record is created for you. This means medical information about you can be held in various places, including your GP practice, any hospital where you’ve had treatment, your dentist practice, and so on.
At times, this can delay information sharing which can affect decision making and slow down treatment.
To help improve the sharing of important information about you there are several different record sharing initiatives. You can find information about the different types of record sharing & how to OPT-OUT using the links below.
