There are three major data sharing initiatives that the practice is involved in.
Camden Integrated Digital Record (CIDR).
Camden is linking together your health and social care information. This is so that your care providers in Camden can view the information needed in one place, to provide you with the best possible care.
This is a local initiative for Camden resident’s registered at a Camden GP practice. It has no relation to the Summary Care Record. No data will be shared with these or other third parties.
You can find more information about CIDR here.
What if I don’t want an integrated Record?
You can opt out at any time by speaking to the reception team who can give you an opt out form.
Summary Care Record
The NHS in England uses an electronic record called the Summary Care Record (SCR) to support patient care.
It’s a copy of key information from your GP record and provides authorised healthcare staff faster, secure access to your essential information when it’s needed. Your summary care record includes:
- Current medications
- Allergies and details of any previous bad reactions to medicines
- Name, address, date of birth and NHS number.
The summary care record helps to reduce the risk of prescribing errors in emergency and urgent care and avoids unnecessary delays in the provision of that care.
If you would like to opt out of the Summary Care record, please inform one of our team.
National Diabetes Audit
The National Diabetes Audit (NDA) is the one of the largest annual clinical audits in the world, integrating data from both primary and secondary care sources, making it the most comprehensive audit of its kind.
What does the NDA measure?
The National Diabetes Audit is a major national clinical audit which measures the effectiveness of diabetes healthcare against NICE Clinical Guidelines and NICE Quality Standards, in England and Wales. The NDA collects and analyses data for use by a range of stakeholders to drive changes and improvements in the quality of services and health outcomes for people with diabetes.
The NDA answers five key questions:
- Is everyone with diabetes diagnosed and recorded on a practice diabetes register?
- What percentage of people registered with diabetes received the nine National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) key processes of diabetes care?
- What percentage of people registered with diabetes achieved NICE defined treatment targets for glucose control, blood pressure and blood cholesterol?
- What percentage of people registered with diabetes are offered and attend a structured education course?
- For people with registered diabetes what are the rates of acute and long term complications (disease outcomes)?
If you would like to Opt out of the National Diabetes Audit, please inform a member of our staff. If you do not have Diabetes then you are not included in this audit.
