Changes to the Shared Care Record

Sep 01 2015

Soon Khandallah Medical Centre will be opting in to Shared Care records. Follow the link below to find out more.

From 20 April 2015, there has been some changes to the Shared Care Record. In brief, this means:

  • GPs are now able to access the Shared Care Record for casual patients seen in their practices.
  • GP access to the Shared Care Record has been extended to include the Hutt Valley region.

The Shared Care Record lets authorised health care providers, such as after hours GPs and hospital doctors, access a summary of information from your GP.

Information like your test results, medical conditions, allergies and prescribed medications will be shared. The information will be available at any time, even if our medical practice is closed.

The information is stored securely in New Zealand and all access to the information is recorded and routinely audited.

You can choose to withhold some or all of your information. However, if you choose to withhold your information, health professionals involved in your care, for example in an emergency or after hours situation, may not immediately have information available and this could delay appropriate treatment and mean additional tests are needed.

If you don’t wish other health providers to have access to your Shared Care Record, you can opt-out by calling us on 0800 727 664, telling your GP, or sending a letter to the freepost address below:
