Your Electronic Patient Record and the Sharing of Information

eDSM (enhanced data sharing model)

Patient information 

Gibson Lane Practice will be upgraded to a new patient record sharing system on the 6th October 2013. This new patient record sharing system will allow patients to decide which information they would like to securely share from their electronic GP record and from other devices where they may be recieving NHS care.

How is my decision recorded?

You can decide whether you want to securely share any of your informaion recorded in the practice with other NHS Services – this is know as ‘sharing out’

You are also able to control whether any information which has been recorded elsewhere can be viewed by your GP – this is known as ‘sharing in’

For more information about information sharing please visit the the NHS Care Records website or see the eDSM Patient leaflet, eDSM Patient letter, Gibson Lane Practice eSDM poster or ask at reception.
