NEW DATA SHARING ARRANGEMENTS
From time to time it is helpful for us to be able to share information about your health and care requirements with other health organisations that are responsible for some of your health care. Across Nottinghamshire we are introducing a new system called MIG (Medical Interoperability Gateway) which will enable us to share relevant medical information, on a view only basis, with clinicians in other healthcare organisations who are involved with your care; for example the NEMS Out of Hours team and local A&E departments.
Sharing of information in this way is designed to ensure that the healthcare professional looking after you has the most relevant information to enable them to provide you with the most appropriate care. The type of information shared is restricted and includes a summary of current problems, current medication, allergies, recent tests, diagnosis, procedures, investigations, risks and warnings – all this information is currently held in your GP system record.
Whenever a clinician from another healthcare organisation wishes to view your record they will always seek your permission before doing so; if you say "NO" they will not be able to see any information. We have automatically set up the sharing facility to allow your information to be shared. However, if you do not wish us to share your information in this way please let us know and we will ensure that your information is not shared.
