What data will be available and who will be able to see it?
The first phase of the ICR will allow health and care professionals to view:
- Your GP practice medical record
- Secondary care and mental health data
Having access to this information will help them provide you with the best care as quickly as possible without having to make phone calls or wait for details to be forwarded by fax or email.
Initially we will bring together information from GPs and provide a view of this to hospitals, including Emergency Departments. And we will add community and social care, ambulance and NHS 111 data.
We will continue to develop the ICR, allowing professionals across more health and social care settings to see information needed to support your care. We will also help services understand and find the best ways to meet people’s care needs.
There are strict rules about how we use your information and, as part of this work, we will ensure it is managed and viewed appropriately and in line with all legal requirements. These include UK Data Protection legislation (DPA 2018 and superseding legislation). All access will also be subject to audit.
