There is a move to share electronic healthcare records across Devon.
Brannam Medical Centre supports this sharing to allow local ambulances, hospitals or out of hours teams to securely access parts of your medical records.
The information shared includes your name, address, date of birth and a summary of your health information including;
- Diagnoses and test results
- Any allergies you have
- Medications and treatment your recieve
You can choose not to share any information with anybody outside your GP Surgery. Speak to your GP's receptionist if you wish to opt out.
From May 25, 2018, the new mutually agreed European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. Strict rules mean companies will not be allowed to collect and use personal information without the person's consent. Here are the links to our privacy notices to give you more information on what we do with your information.
