Early Home Visiting Scheme

Evidence suggests that if we provide a home visit to those patients who need it before midday, we can refer patients to hospital earlier, if necessary.  This may ensure a better outcome for patients who are then likely to be seen earlier in the day and return home, if at all possible.  This outcome will also provide a cost saving to the NHS.

Sharing GP records with the Royal United Hospital

Clinical staff at RUH are now able to view your entire GP records when they treat you.  They cannot change them or add to them, but they are able to look at information that could be useful in treating you.  It will also speed up access to information that the hospital would otherwise have to request from us.

The hospital doctor or nurse will ask for your consent before they look at your GP record, and you can refuse at the time if you prefer.  Alternatively you can tell us that you do not want your health record shared in this way, and we can block it at this end.
