With the introduction of the Summary Care Record many patients are considering "opting out" due to concerns over security and accuracy of data.
We can offer an alternative.
We will provide you with a copy of your full medical record to be kept at home. This information will be supplied on a secure USB device which can only be accessed by you, or those you authorise, and can be viewed on any PC. No Information will be held on a central database and you will be in full control of who is allowed to view your personal information.
We will also include a Medical Information form, for you to complete, providing details of your existing conditions, medication, allergies and health history. This form will remain free from security to allow access by emergency medical staff if necessary.
This will not only allow you to review your medical information to ensure the data held about you is correct, it will also provide a more comprehensive medical history than the Summary Care Record, as you will have details of your complete medical record.
You will also be able to take this when travelling abroad, to assist with overseas treatment if necessary.
If you have an existing medical condition, allergies, receive regular treatment or just want peace of mind that your information is correct, and can be accessed at any time, we can help.
