Sharing Your Medical Record
Increasingly, patient medical data is shared e.g. between GP surgeries and District Nursing, in order to give clinicians access to the most up to date information when attending patients.
The systems we operate require that any sharing of medical information is consented to by patients beforehand. Patients must consent to sharing of the data held by a health provider out to other health providers and must also consent to which of the other providers can access their data.
e.g. it may be necessary to share data held in GP practices with district nurses but the local podiatry department would not need to see it to undertake their work. In this case, patients would allow the surgery to share their data, they would allow the district nurses to access it but they would not allow access by the podiatry department. In this way access to patient data is under patients' control and can be shared on a 'need to know' basis.

Online Access to Hospital Records
My medical record is your personal health record (PHR) provided by University Hospital Southampton. It’s a secure, patient-owned record that can:
- Support you to co-manage your healthcare
- Connect you with your care team
- Provide you with information from the hospital
- Reduce the need for hospital visits
My medical record stores and displays the personal and medical information held in your personal health record, some of which will be loaded from hospital systems. Information can be viewed and shared securely from any web enabled device, such as computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
It allows you to add your own information about your health, including details which may be being monitored as part of your current treatment, such as your weight or blood pressure. In some cases this may reduce the need for you to attend outpatient appointments. You can also keep a record of anything that you think might be relevant to your overall healthcare, such as medications or emergency contacts.
While any University Hospital Southampton patient can use the service to perform actions such as receive documents, results and manage their appointments, My medical record also has a range of condition specific tools.
