YOUR CARE CONNECTED
This was introduced in April, 2016 and is being implemented across Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull. This allows doctors, nurses and other registered healthcare professionals working in secondary care to view information from a patient’s GP records with the patient’s permission. They can view demographics, diagnoses, medication, allergies, investigations, vaccinations, referrals, end of life wishes and safeguarding concerns. When a patient visits a participating secondary care organisation, the treating clinician will ask patients permission before accessing any information.
For more information please visit MidlandsYourCareConnected.nhs.uk or call 0333 150 3388.
If you wish to allow access to Your Care Connected you do not need to do anything.

PUBLIC HEALTH ENGLAND
The practice will share information with Public Health England from time to time for the purposes of public health.
From 2.12.16 for the Latent TB Screening Programme, TB related information will be shared with Public Health England. This information will help them see how well they are reaching people at risk of latent TB and helps Public Health England to monitor LTBI uptake and evaluate the effectiveness of this programme.
