Stockport Health and Care Record

The request was successful.

Dear Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council,

I would like to make a request under the FOI Act.

For the purposes of the Act, please take the date of your receipt of this request as 9th February 2016.

I am interested in the relationship (if any) between your organisation and the Stockport Health and Care Record (clinical data repository), which I will refer to as SHCR.

• Please could you tell me whether your organisation is already extracting and uploading personal confidential data about patients/clients to the SHCR?

• If not commenced already, do you have plans to commence feeds into the SHCR at anytime between now and 31st March 2017?

If the answer to both of the above is no, then thank you very much, ignore the remainder of this request, and please consider my request closed.

However, if your organisation is already uploading, or is planning to before March 31st 2017, then please can you provide me with the following:

• Any and all fair processing information (posters/leaflets/handouts) made available, or planning to be made available, to patients/clients informing them of this new use of their data

• Any and all policies on the implementation of SHCR feeds by your organisation

• The types/nature of information that you are, or will be, extracting and uploading to the SHCR

• The opt-out form (or process) available to patients to express dissent to this type of processing of their data, and so block uploading of all their personal confidential data to the SHCR by your organisation (in line with the DPA and NHS Constitution)

I would be grateful if you would be kind enough to send me the requested information promptly and in any event not later than the twentieth working day following the date of receipt of my request.

I would be grateful if you would kindly acknowledge receipt of this request as recommended by the ICO (“It would be good practice to acknowledge receipt of requests and to refer to the 20 working day time limit, so that applicants know their request is being dealt with”).

Thank you once again.

Kind regards,

Dr Neil Bhatia

FOI Officer, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council
