SystmOne Records Sharing Policy

Your medical records are held in one of three formats: paper, electronic, or a combination of paper and electronic. The majority of our patients will have both paper and electronic records.

Our electronic records software is called SystmOne. Within SystmOne, practices are able to share your electronic medical records with other NHS care providers who are also using SystmOne. We can also see the records which other NHS care providers keep about you. The term 'NHS care providers' may include, but is not limited to: district nurses, diabetic nurses, community matrons, community phlebotomy, musculoskeletal services, podiatry, speech and language therapy, health visitors and walk-in centres.

We will only share your data or view your data shared by others if you tell us that we can, each time you access a service.

For more information about how records are shared between NHS care providers, please read the following information leaflets:

As from Monday 6th February 2017 Woodlands Family Medical Centre will be implementing a new policy whereby all patients will have implied consent unless they inform us in writing that they wish to dissent.

If you wish to dissent to Woodlands Family Medical Centre sharing your records with other NHS care providers who provide care for you, or from viewing the records of other NHS organisations who provide care for you, please ask reception for a form to complete.

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised and the required disclose is shown below. However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices.
The average earnings for GPs working in the Woodlands Family Medical Centre in the last financial year was £92,129 before taxation and National Insurance. This is for 4 full time GPs and 4 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
