Information sharing with other NHS organisations

Your health records are shared with other NHS organisations that provide a service on behalf of the Christie or are involved directly with your health care.

In addition, The Christie provides a computerised facility to allow secure access to the NHS staff that are caring for you in the Manchester and Cheshire regions.

This facility provides your data to clinicians (such as your GP, A&E staff, hospital nurses and doctors) to view elements of your record to help inform their decisions about you.

The Christie also has access to your health records from other NHS organisations which can be used to help Christie staff make the best decisions about your care.

If you do NOT wish for your Christie record to be made available to other NHS organisations, please inform us in writing and we will remove this facility.

If you do NOT want Christie staff to access your health records from other specific NHS organisations, please inform us in writing and we will remove this facility.
