Dear Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership,

I have become aware of the GM Care Record and from what I can ascertain this is digital system of sharing information about patients medical records across different providers within Greater Manchester. This includes any records of mental health treatment, social care, physical health care.

I want to ask if this is correct?

If so when this came into force?

Who can access this information?

Does this include notes on consultations, ie records of mental health assessments for example?

Who has access to this information. For example is it all frontline staff, clerical staff etc?

The most important question I have is how does one opt out of this system? On your website you say to opt out you should "talk to your health professional" but it doesn't specify who this is. For example, if you see a lot of different health and social care professionals, do you have to talk to each one?

Also it is too late once you are having an appointment as by then the health and social care professional will have already had the information and formed a biased view of the patient if that information is inaccurate or misleading which has a detrimental effect on the patient.

I would like clear instructions for anyone who wants to opt out of this system.

As I have already informed my GP that I do not want to share information without my consent after a data sharing breach I experienced, do I also need to inform my GP again as well. My GP does not seem to beware of GM Care and neither do the hospitals I have approached either.

Yours faithfully,

Deborah Bhatti
