GP Extended Access

Lawful basis for sharing data

'Public task' - processing your data is a requirement to carry out our official duties

Patients can choose to withhold their data
Consent is required for viewing shared data

GP Extended Access is a national programme designed to provide patients with access to routine GP services 7 days a week. These services are not provided by your normal GP Practice, but are arranged by local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs)

In St. Helens these services have been commissioned by NHS St Helens CCG and are being provided by Urgent Care 24 (UC24)

The information we share

Health care staff working for UC24 are given read only access to your full medical record. This ensures that when they are treating you they have relevant, up-to-date information about your conditions, allergies and the medication you are taking

The Practice do not send information to UC24; their staff view information held by the Practice - they do not keep a copy of your record

You have a choice

You can refuse to allow staff working at UC24 to view your information, but this means that they may not be able to treat you effectively. Alternatively, you can choose to withhold your data, however this may mean that you will not be able to use the GP Extended Access service

If you do not wish your data to be shared with UC24, please inform the Practice as soon as possible
