GP Connect is a service that allows information and the GP Patient Record to be viewed and shared between IT systems. This means authorised clinical staff from different healthcare settings can share and view clinical information held by a GP Practice.
The sharing of records is only for the purpose of direct care, where the patient is being treated or consulted in a setting away from their regular GP. GP Connect respects patient consent choices and will not share their data if the patient has asked their GP not to.
If patients do not wish their information to be shared using GP Connect, they can opt out by contacting Burton Croft Surgery.
