HAMPSHIRE HEALTH RECORD SCHEME

 

The practice is now participating in the Hampshire Health Record scheme.

 

 

The Hampshire Health Record is an electronic summary record for people living in Hampshire, Portsmouth and Southampton. The record stores information from GP surgeries, hospitals, social and community care teams in one place so that, with your consent, professionals can view it to deliver better care to you.

With the combined information this will allow health professionals taking care of you to:

  • have the right information at the right time
  • reduce waiting times
  • lessen the need for additional tests such as repeated X-rays
  • help health professionals to give you the most appropriate medication
  • provide even better clinical decision making

Information in the Hampshire Health Record is protected and seen by only the right people for the right reasons. You right to privacy and onfidentiality is protected at all times by the Data Protection Act. Every time someone views your record, their identity and the time and date are recorded for security purposes.
