About shared patient records

General Practices in Guildford and Waverley and the CEDAR (Centre for Endocrinology Diabetes and Research) Centre team at the Royal Surrey are now sharing your patient records. This means that when you are seen at the CEDAR Centre the staff will be able to read your entire GP care record. When you then go to see your GP they will be able to read what happened during your consultations at the CEDAR Centre. Communication between the CEDAR Centre team and your Primary Care team will be almost instant – no more having to wait for letters to arrive at the surgery. It will enable GPs and CEDAR clinicians to quickly and efficiently see what treatments you have been on and what has been happening with your care at the hospital and in primary care. This is very innovative and will improve your care and management.

Your information is secure and subject to strict NHS confidentiality regulations and audits. Your records can only be accessed by authorised healthcare professionals directly caring for you. If you do not want your GP records to be shared you should discuss your concerns with your GP.  They will be able to explain this new way of working and hopefully re-assure you of the benefits; or you can opt out if you wish.

Patient quotes on this new way of working

“I think this is a great idea as it will allow the Diabetes Team to offer a much more holistic and personalised approach to my care and treatment. It will offer a more streamlined service, saving time at appointments to discuss what really matters and will expedite changes in prescriptions and treatment. All in all, making my life easier!”

“Patients records can be electronically viewed in Primary/Secondary care. Making details available for all appropriate Healthcare Professionals to view in full without delay.

“The adoption of EMIS brings together what were two totally isolated areas of Diabetic care. Now one’s care can be developed into one smooth package, accessible to all”
