Data Sharing in Stockport Health Services - Say Yes Campaign
Stockport CCG are changing the way we share information about your health and care to help improve individual care, speed up diagnosis and treatment and deliver better local services.
When you access services across Stockport you may be asked by staff if they can access your health records. These are services such as the out of hours GP providers, Stepping Hill Hospital, 7 day healthcare that is coming soon, District Nurses etc.
By saying YES and giving permission to see your health and care information will help to improve your care and help in understanding any health conditions or care plans you have.
They cannot do this without your consent each and every time that you present to a service outside of your GP surgery. You can choose when to say yes and when to decline. You do have the right to say no to sharing your information at any point and if you wish to opt out as a whole please complete an opt out form from reception.
