PATIENT DECLARATION for all patients who are not ordinarily resident in the UK
Anybody in England can register with a GP practice and receive free medical care from that practice. However, if you are not ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK you may have to pay for NHS treatment outside of the GP practice. Being ordinarily resident broadly means living lawfully in the UK on a properly settled basis for the time being. In most cases, nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area must also have the status of ‘indefinite leave to remain’ in the UK. Some services, such as diagnostic tests of suspected infectious diseases and any treatment of those diseases are free of charge to all people, while some groups who are not ordinarily resident here are exempt from all treatment charges. More information on ordinary residence, exemptions and paying for NHS services can be found in the Visitor and Migrant patient leaflet, available from your GP practice.
You may be asked to provide proof of entitlement in order to receive free NHS treatment outside of the GP practice, otherwise you may be charged for your treatment. Even if you have to pay for a service, you will always be provided with any immediately necessary or urgent treatment, regardless of advance payment. The information you give on this form will be used to assist in identifying your chargeable status, and may be shared, including with NHS secondary care organisations (e.g. hospitals) and NHS Digital, for the purposes of validation, invoicing and cost recovery. You may be contacted on behalf of the NHS to confirm any details you have provided.

Data Sharing and You
Medical Records & Data Sharing explained: As part of the NHS, our surgery aims to provide you with the highest quality of health care. To do this we must keep records about you, your health and the care we have provided or plan to provide to you. These records may include:
• Basic details about you such as address, telephone number, date of birth, next of kin • Contact we have had with you such as clinical visits • Notes and reports about your health • Details and records about your treatment and care, including test results • Relevant information from people who care for you and know you well such as health professionals and relatives
Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential. We have a duty to maintain full and accurate records of the care we provide to you. Some information will be held centrally to be used for statistical purposes. In these instances we take strict measures to ensure that individual patients cannot be identified. We use anonymous information, wherever possible, but on occasions we may use personal identifiable information for essential NHS purposes such as research and auditing.
We will not share information that identifies you for any reason unless: • You ask us to do so • We ask and you give us specific permission • We have to do this by law • We have special permission for health and research purposes, or • We have special permission because the interest of the public are thought to be of greater importance than your confidentiality, for example, if you had a serious medical condition that may put others you may have come into contact with at risk • When we use this information we make sure that, wherever possible, we do not use personal details such as your name and address, in order to protect your confidentially. When releasing information to researchers, we give them only the minimum data necessary and all their research is carefully vetted.
At the surgery there are three main organisations with which we share your data
Summary Care Record
There is a national NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). This is an electronic record, which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you have and any bad reactions to medicines you may have had. Having this information stored in one place makes it easier for healthcare professionals to treat you in an emergency, or if your GP practice is closed. This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe you.
You can add more information such as your health problems, carer details or communication needs to your SCR. This is called an enhanced SCR so if you ever need treatment away from your GP surgery, health care staff will have a better understanding of your needs and preferences.
For further information visit the NHS Digital website
Care and Health Information Exchange (CHIE)
The Care and Health Information Exchange (CHIE) is a secure system which shares key parts of your electronic record from GP surgeries, hospitals, community, mental health and social services. It allows health professionals across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight to provide safer and faster treatment for you and your family.
Care and Health Information Analytics (CHIA)
Your information is also used to improve future care for you, your family and for other patients. This helps plan NHS services and supports medical research. To keep your information safe it is moved to a separate database called ‘Care and Health Information Analytics’ (CHIA) and changed so that it cannot be used to identify you. Your data is never shared for the benefit of commercial companies like drug manufactures. People who analyse data on CHIA do not have access to CHIE, so cannot identify you.
Information submitted through secure forms is used only for the purposes of processing your request. We may
be in touch with you in relation to the information submitted.
All Information submitted through secure forms is secured with a private key and is accessed over a secure
connection by nominated staff. We have a strict confidentiality policy.
This information is not shared with any third party organisations.
This information is retained for up to 28 days.
Should you have any concerns about sending your personal details using the web,
please use one of the alternative methods offered by our organisation.
