Your GP records potentially visible to others

#1 Postby Alan H » March 23rd, 2017, 5:46 pm

Many GPs use the EMIS system to store your medical records, but if they use TPP SystemOne, your records may be visible to others: For patients whose doctors use TPP SystmOne
Nothing below affects you, unless your doctor uses TPP SystmOne.

Due to a failure by TPP SystmOne, your record may be visible to authorised users in other parts of the NHS that also use TPP SystmOne, unless you (or your GP) have previously taken an active decision to prevent this.

You will know if you took this decision already, because such a decision will affect the care you can receive as it affects who can access your GP record, including for services such as out-of-hours care. While access should be able to be restricted by your GP practice to only those who provide them out-of-hours care, that restriction is not currently offered by TPP. Therefore any authorised user, at any organisation that uses TPP SystmOne, can potentially access at least some of your record.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?
