Primary Care Network
We are a member of Unity Primary Care Network (PCN). This means we will be working closely with a number of other practices and other health and care organisations to provide healthcare services to you.
During this course of our work we may share your information with these practices and health care organisations/professionals. We will only share this information where it relates to your direct healthcare needs. When we do this we will always ensure that appropriate agreements are in place to protect your information and keep it safe and secure. This is also what the law requires us to do.
We use a facility called GP Connect to support your direct care. GP Connect makes patient information available to all appropriate clinicians when and where they need it, to support direct patients care, leading to improvements in both care and outcomes.GP Connect is not used for any purpose other than direct care.
Authorised Clinicians such as GPs, NHS 111 Clinicians, Care Home Nurses (if you are in a Care Home), Secondary Care Trusts, Social Care Clinicians are able to access the GP records of the patients they are treating via a secure NHS Digital service called GP connect.
The NHS 111 service (and other services determined locally e.g. Other GP practices in a Primary Care Network) will be able to book appointments for patients at GP practices and other local services.
If you would like to see the information the PNC holds about you please contact Nathan Moore the Practice Manager at Broomfield Medical Centre.
