Privacy Notice Summary Care Record

Privacy Notice – Summary Care Record 

Plain English explanation

The Summary Care Record is an English NHS development. It consists of a basic medical record held on a central government database on every patient registered with a GP surgery
in England. The basic data is automatically extracted from your GP’s electronic record system and uploaded to the central system GPs are required by their contract with the NHS to allow this upload. The basic upload consists of current medication, allergies and details of any previous bad reactions to medicines, the name, address, date of birth and NHS
number of the patient
https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1989/41/section/17

As well as this basic record additional information can be added, and this can be far reaching and detailed. However, whereas the basic data is uploaded automatically any additional data will only be uploaded if you specifically request it and with your consent.

Summary Care Records can only be viewed within the NHS on NHS smartcard controlled screens or by organisation, such as pharmacies, contracted to the NHS.

* “Common Law Duty of Confidentiality”, common law is not written out in one document like an Act of
Parliament. It is a form of law based on previous court cases decided by judges; hence, it is also referred to as
‘judge-made’ or case law. The law is applied by reference to those previous cases, so common law is also said
to be based on precedent.
The general position is that if information is given in circumstances where it is expected that a duty of
confidence applies, that information cannot normally be disclosed without the information provider’s consent.
In practice, this means that all patient information, whether held on paper, computer, visually or audio
recorded, or held in the memory of the professional, must not normally be disclosed without the consent of the
patient. It is irrelevant how old the patient is or what the state of their mental health is; the duty still applies.
Three circumstances making disclosure of confidential information lawful are:
• where the individual to whom the information relates has consented;
• where disclosure is in the public interest; and
• where there is a legal duty to do so, for example a court order.
