Scottish Primary care information resource

NHSScotland  is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records.  SPIRE is a service that will allow small amounts of information from GP practice records to be used to help doctors’ surgeries, NHSScotland and the Scottish Government to improve care and plan services, and to help researchers to learn more from the patient information held at GP practices.
A new campaign is underway to inform patients across Scotland of the benefits of the service, and the confidential and secure way in which GP patient records will be used to help plan and improve health care service.
You have a choice about your patient record being used in this way. If you choose not to share your information then an Opt out form can be printed from the SPIRE website at , but please remember to complete the form in English.
