Under the terms of the 2015/16 GP contract we will additionally be providing access to coded information in patient records from 1 April 2016.
The medical software will be configured to offer coded data but GPs will have the option to withhold coded information where they judge it to be in the patient's interests or where there is reference to a third party. In particular, there may be circumstances where it is likely to cause serious harm to the physical or mental health, or condition, of the patient or any other person in which case a GP should withhold that information.
The provision of sensitive personal data requires the practice to verify a patent's identity prior to the granting of access and we are currently planning the processes to be used to ensure that this meets all relevant information governance and data protection guidelines.
