Information Sharing

 

The practice complies with Data Protection and Access to Medical records legislation.  Identifiable information about you will be shared under the following circumstance

 

  • To provide medical treatment e.g. District Nurses, Health Visitors and Hospital Service.

 

  • To help with other services e.g. Social Work.  This requires your consent.

 

  • When we have a duty of care to others e.g. child protection cases.

 

  • Anonymised patient information will also be used at local and national level to help the Health Board and Government plan Services e.g. diabetic care.  If you do not wish anonymous information about you to be used in such a way please let us know.

 

 

Reception and administration staff require access to medical records in order to do their jobs. These members of staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the medical staff.

 

Rights and Responsibilities

In the rare event of a patient being violent, threatening or abusive to staff or other people in the practice, we may call the police, and we may ask that you be removed for our patient list.  There is a special GP practice in the city to which violent patients will be referred.

The Health Service

In order to manage the NHS some restricted information concerning treatments drugs prescribed, numbers of patients seen, etc. is needed and hospitals and general practices must provide this information in returns to various central bodies.

 

Managing the data

We need to be able to move electronic information from system to system, extracting the data and modifying it for the next system.

Occasionally, tests will need to be made on the data to check that it has been transferred correctly. This will only be done under carefully controlled conditions and all employees and contractors will be under strict contractual obligations to protect your confidentiality.

Other Agencies

The NHS is not the only government service to provide you with care and it will be necessary for us to provide other agencies with appropriate information, but only with your consent (or that of your relatives if you are too ill).

Out of Hours Patient Care

Information is linked electronically from you Surgery to the Out of Hours Emergency Service.  The only information that they can obtain from this is your current medication and if you have any allergies.

 

This service is to improve your medical care and to help the Doctors and Nurses in case you or a family member cannot remember or you are too ill to tell them.

 

If you do not wish this information passed on then please notify your GP.

 

Leaflets are available in the Surgery waiting room.

 

How we protect your information

 

The sensitivity of patient information is well understood within the NHS. All staff and contractors are trained to respect their duty of confidentiality to you, and have this written in their contracts.

 

We keep paper and electronic records securely to prevent unauthorized access or misuse. Wherever practicable, we remove references to personal details such as your name and address, and often restrict it further to reduce the chances of anyone identifying a record as relating to you.

 

 

Section 4:  How we take decisions and what we have decided

 

The practice partners generally meet every Friday, which is a practice meetings, all other meetings tend to be clinical meetings. These are practical to discuss decision making for various conditions. The practice tends to follow NHS guidelines on most things, however where these do not exist the practice creates working protocols. These are usually discussed with the front of house team where this involves action by reception.

 

 

1. Minutes/actions previous meeting

2. Staff issues 

3. Appointments /messages/prescriptions 

4. Training

5. Holidays

6. Significant events

7. Complaints/comments/compliments

8. Quality Outcomes Framework /Anticipatory Care Plans and Polypharmacy

9. Any other business    

 

Also the Health Visitors and the District nurses meet regularly with the practice clinical team to discuss cases.  This is held on the last Tuesday of every month as well as a Practice Nurse meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of every month.

 

The practice is firmly of the belief that patient care is a process of consultation with the patient being the one who agrees the care proposed by the clinician. Patients (who have the capacity to make their own decisions) are firmly in the process of decision making regarding their own care.

  

 

Please see Section 14 – Classes of information for further details.

Advice and assistance

If you have any difficulty identifying the information you want to access, then please contact the practice by one of the methods listed above.

 

 

Section 7:  Information that we may withhold

 

All information covered by our guide to information can either be accessed through our website or at the Practice this will be processed promptly and provided as soon as possible following our receipt of your request.

 

Our aim in maintaining this guide is to be as open as possible.  You should note, however, that there may be circumstances where information will be withheld from one of the classes of information listed in Section 14 – Classes of Information.  Information will only be withheld where permitted by The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA).

 

Information may be withheld, for example, where its disclosure would breach the law of confidentiality or harm an organisation’s commercial interests.  Information may also be withheld if it is another person’s personal information, and its release would breach data protection legislation.

 

Information would not be disclosed in the following examples:

  • Requests for information that is contained in patient medical records.  However, you do have the right to request your own medical records, see Section 13 - How to access information which is not available under this scheme.
  • Requests for information relating to private income of practice partners or practice staff
  • Requests for financial information that would likely prejudice substantially the commercial interests of any person

 

Additionally, section 25 of FOISA provides an absolute exemption which allows our practice to refuse to deal with a request where the requested information is already reasonably obtainable elsewhere, even where a fee may be charged.  Information provided in the publication scheme is considered reasonably obtainable.

 

Whenever information is withheld we will inform you of this, and will set out why it was not appropriate for that information to be disclosed.  Even where information is withheld it may, in many cases, be possible to provide copies with the withheld information edited out.

 

If you wish to complain about any information which has been withheld from you, please refer to Section 10 – Complaints.

 

 

Section 8: Our charging policy

We reserve the right to impose charges for providing information in paper copy or on computer disc.  Charges will reflect the actual costs of reproduction and postage to the practice, as set out below.

 

In the event that a charge is to be levied, you will be advised of the charge and how it has been calculated.  Information will not be provided to you until payment has been received.

 

Reproduction costs:

Charges for information which is not available under the guide

 

The charges for information which is available under this guide are set out under Section 8 – Our Charging Policy.  Fees for information that is not available under this guide are outlined in The Freedom of Information (Fees for Required Disclosure) (Scotland) Regulations 2004.  If you submit a request to us for information which is not available under the Model Publication Scheme 2014 the charges will be based on the following calculations:

 

General information requests

 

  • There will be no charge for information requests which cost us £100 or less to process.
  • Where information costs between £100 and £600 to provide you may be asked to pay 10% of the cost. That is, if you were to ask for information that cost us £600 to provide, you would be asked to pay £50, calculated on the basis of a waiver for the first £100 and 10% of the remaining £500.
  • We are not obliged to respond to requests which will cost us over £600 to process.
  • In calculating any fee, staff time will be calculated at actual cost per staff member hourly salary rate to a maximum of £15 per person per hour.
  • We do not charge for the time to determine whether we hold the information requested, nor for the time it takes to decide whether the information can be released. Charges may be made for locating, retrieving and providing information to you.
  • In the event that we decide to impose a charge we will issue you with notification of the charge (a fees notice) and how it has been calculated. You will have three months from the date of issue of the fees notice in which to decide whether to pay the charge. The information will be provided to you on payment of the charge. If you decide not to proceed with the request there will be no charge to you.

 

Charges for environmental information

We do not charge for the time to determine whether we hold the information requested, nor for the time it takes to decide whether the information can be released.

 

In the event that we decide to impose a charge we will issue you with notification of the charge and how it has been calculated. The information will be provided to you on payment of the charge. If you decide not to proceed with the request there will be no charge to you.

 

Charges are calculated on the basis of the actual cost to the authority of providing the information.

 

  • Photocopying is charged at 10p per A4 sheet for black and white copying, 30p per A4 sheet for colour copying.
  • Postage is charged at actual rate for first class mail.
  • Staff time is calculated at actual cost per staff member hourly salary rate to a maximum of £15 per person per hour.

 

The first £100worth of information will be provided to you without charge.

 

Where information costs between £100 and £600 to provide you will be asked to pay 10% of the cost. That is, if you were to ask for information that cost us £600 to provide, you would be asked to pay £50 calculated on the basis of a waiver for the first £100 and 10% of the remaining £500.

 

Where it would cost more than £600to provide the information to you, however, we will ask you to pay the full cost of providing the information, with no waiver for any portion of the cost.

 

Requests for your own personal data

 

While you cannot request personal data under the FOISA you are entitled to request your own personal data under the DPA.  Under the DPA you can request your personal information from The Maryhill Red Practice.  We reserve the right to charge a maximum of £50 for requests for an individual’s own personal information.

Note for practices when competing this section :

The Model Publication Scheme does not require individual salaries or income (including information from which this can easily be deduced) to be proactively published.

 

Practices should make a note in this class to explain the above and to remind the public they have the right to request information under the Act.  GPs will be free at that point to apply exemptions and the requester has the right to appeal to the Information Commissioner.

 

Each GP should also consider what they can publish/release which gives the public as much information as possible on the cost of services, without disclosing personal information.  There should be no reason why the practice cannot publish details of their NHS funding.
