Computers & information

The Practice uses a computer system to store your medical records/history. We also send some details by computer link to the Strategic Health Authority’s office in Lewes. Only your personal details, as appear on your medical card (name, address, NHS number) are currently transferred. In line with the National Programme for Information Technology, all GP’s will eventually transfer clinical information to a central computer with access limited to medical and other care services. If you are not happy with your information being sent in this way you must let us know in writing. The Data Protection act requires that you aware of this.
