Will you be respecting any patient requests not to upload data to the Surrey Care Record? For clarification, I mean uploading or transferring data from your systems to the Surrey Care Record, rather than the option patients have to ‘opt-out’ of sharing data already held within the Surrey Care Record.
Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust will respect patients wishes who decide that they want to ‘opt-out’ of their data being shared as part of the Surrey Care Record.
The Trust is still in negotiations with the Surrey Heartlands Project team to ensure that if a patient wishes to ‘opt-out’ of their data being uploaded and/or transferred to the Surrey Care Record that there is a mechanism by which the Trust can apply and respect the patient’s wishes.
Once we have further information on how the ‘opt-out’ will work, we will publish this information via the Trust’s Privacy Notice.
