Sharing Your Medical Information

For a number of years, work has been ongoing to improve the way that medical records are made available to treating clinicians. Our main computer system is called SystmOne, which has the    advantage of enabling information to be shared between certain health professionals.


Enhanced Data Sharing Model (EDSM) enables us, with your consent, to share your medical records with those in the NHS who are involved in your care. NHS staff can only access shared information if they are involved in your care and being an electronic service an audit log is maintained showing when and who has accessed medical records.


EDSM should not be confused with care.data. EDSM only allows those treating you to access  medical records. It does not enable your records to be used for research or other purposes.


We already share records of children for child protection reasons and patients who are under the care of the District Nursing Team.  This helps clinicians to make decisions based upon a wider knowledge of you and also helps to reduce the number of  times that  you or your family members are asked the same question. In short it assists clinicians to provide more ‘joined up care’.
