The Hampshire Health Record (CHIE)

This is a personal website and in no way affiliated with any GP surgery or Clinical Commissioning Group.


This site tells you very simply about The Hampshire Health Record.

The Hampshire Health Record (HHR) is yet another massive central database of medical records, and was established in 2004.

It has recently changed its name to the Care and Health Information Exchange (CHIE).

Uploaded to this database are the full GP records from participating GP surgeries as well as records from certain hospitals and NHS trusts, which are then potentially available to very many NHS staff across Hampshire.

The Hampshire Health Record is sometimes known as the Hampshire Clinical Data Repository, for obvious reasons.

The "official" HHR patient website is at www.hantshealthrecord.nhs.uk.

You can find out about all of the NHS Databases, and other NHS data sharing schemes, via www.nhsdatasharing.info


When it come to how your GP-held medical information is used:


Primary uses are uses of data for the main purpose for which they were originally collected directly from the individuals concerned.

For your GP record, this means making that information available, to healthcare professionals that you are seeing, for your direct medical care.

The Summary Care Record is an example of a primary use of your GP medical record.

You can download a simple factsheet about data sharing between healthcare professionals here.


Secondary uses are uses of existing data for purposes other than those for which they were originally obtained.

For your GP record, this means making that information available, to anyone (not just within the NHS), for purposes other than providing your direct medical care.

Examples of secondary uses include, research, audit, healthcare planning, commercial and even political uses.

You can download a simple factsheet about the Type 1 secondary uses opt-out here.



The National Data Opt Out

On 25th May 2018, NHS Digital launched the National Data Opt Out (NDOO), destined to replace the Type 2 opt-out.

You can find information on the NDOO:

The NDOO is nothing new. The Type 2 opt-out has been around for a number of years.


The National Data Opt Out doesn't stop you contributing to any research where you are asked first.

It only stops the use of your confidential medical information where you are not asked before your data is taken and used.

What are the purposes of the HHR ?


The Hampshire Health Record is an example of a database that processes your data for both primary and secondary uses.

The information held in the data repository is made available to healthcare professionals across Hampshire, for the provision of direct medical care should you have need to see a clinician outside of your GP surgery. This is known as a primary medical use of information, in the same way that your GP uses your electronic record as held by your surgery.

The information held in the data repository is also made available to organisations for the purposes of healthcare planning, commissioning, audit, and research etc. The information is ultimately disseminated in anonymised and aggregate (numbers) formats. This is known as secondary uses of your information, as it has nothing to do with your direct medical care.

You can find out more about secondary uses of your medical records via www.nhsdatasharing.info

What is uploaded to the HHR - and who is uploading information about me?


GP surgeries, hospital trusts, community services, mental health trusts and local councils are all uploading information to the HHR.

Your entire GP record is uploaded to the HHR, that is every single coded entry on the GP electronic record. All diagnoses and medication, all results and all values and measurements.
The only thing not uploaded is free text (at present) and certain sensitive diagnoses.

The Hampshire Health Record will only apply to you if :

Your GP surgery is required by law to tell you if it is uploading your information to the HHR.


Organisations that are uploading information that they hold about you (for example blood tests, xray results, clinic letters, care plans and hospital discharge letters):


Organisations that do not upload to the HHR include:



Direct Medical Care, the HHR, and GDPR


For direct medical care purposes - that is, the sharing of your medical information with other healthcare professionals who are providing you with medical care at the time - organisations will rely on the following GDPR Articles, or legal bases, to process your information (i.e. extract and upload):

  • Article 6(1)(e) - official tasks
  • Article 9(2)(h) - provision of health
  • Article 6(1)(e) comes with certains subject rights that apply to the information about you that is extract, uploaded and stored within the HHR:

    The right to object is commonly referred to as the right to opt-out when it comes to the HHR.

    You can find out how to object to any or all of the organisations that might be uploading your personal information later in this website.

    Portsmouth Hospitals NHS FT is the only organisation asserting that it is relying upon other legal bases to process data for direct care, namely Legal Obligation and/or Vital Interests. Conveniently, these two legal bases do not come with any right to object.




    Who can access my information in the HHR ?


    All of the organisations extracting and uploading your information to the HHR can also access your records.

    In addition, the following organisations can access your HHR information, although they do not extract and upload to it:


    Organisations that cannot access the HHR, or do not access it at all or in any meaningful way, include:

    The HHR is rarely used by community nurses, who already have full access to the GP records of their patients via their GP surgery system.

    Health Visitors working for Southern Health NHS FT, with the exception of those working within NEHFCCG, use EMIS Web data streaming, known as the MIG, to access GP records.


    Please note : unlike other shared care records, you may not be asked for your explicit permission before your HHR information is accessed by a clinician.

    In the majority of occasions, your explicit consent will be obtained prior to your HHR being accessed by a clinician, but that may not always be the case.

    Whilst access to the HHR has always been permissible (under the DPA and common law) in a true emergency, when a patient is incapable of consenting (e.g. unconscious), clinicians are seemingly able to access the HHR of a patient in advance of a routine consultation (even though consent could easily be obtained prior to the appointment).

    Who is the Data Controller for my uploaded GP information ?


    Your GP surgery remains the data controller (in common) for the data that it uploads, NHS South, Central and West CSU are acting as the data processor.

    Despite this, your GP surgery has no control whatsoever over secondary processing of uploaded information, if it permits such processing.


    Back to index



    Do I need the HHR ?


    The choice to make your medical information widely accessible should be your active and explicit one.

    There are many, and ofter better, ways to make your medical information available to others if you need to or want to. The HHR is not the only way.

    Not having an HHR, or opting out of the HHR, will in no way affect the medical care and treatment that you receive from your GP surgery, or affect the ability for your GP to refer you to a specialist for further care, should this be necessary. You remain fully (and legally) entitled to all the NHS care that you require, either from a GP, hospital A&E department or a hospital specialist, wherever you are in the UK.

    Not having an HHR, or opting out of the HHR, in no way limits all of the other and many ways that your medical information can be made available to those who require it.

    That information can be made available by you - the patient - directly, or by temporarily giving the health professional secure online access to your medical record.

    That information can, is, and always will be made available to those who require it by your GP, whether directly, by phone, fax, text, letter, email, e-referral or e-prescription.

    You will not be opting out of the NHS in any way.

    The HHR has absolutely nothing to do with the ability to securely access your GP electronic record online. Secure records access (as it is known) does not involve uploading information extracted from your GP record, and your GP surgery remains the data controller for the information. You GP records are only available to you in this way. In contrast to the HHR, you will need to give your explicit consent before your records are made available via secure records access.

    Opting out of any or all of the NHS Databases, whether the HHR, the Summary Care Record or secondary uses, in no way prevents you from asking for, and being granted, secure online access to your GP electronic record.

    You can find out about accessing your medical record online in this factsheet. EMIS is one GP software system that already offers this, but the other GP software systems will be doing this as well.

    If you are interested in obtaining secure online access to your GP record then just fill in this form and hand it in to your GP surgery.

    In addition, the HHR or any of the NHS Databases have absolutely nothing to do with the ability to securely access some aspects of your hospital records online, again only at your explicit request. These portals include Patient Portal and Patient View.

    Do I need to opt out of the HHR if I have already opted out of secondary uses of my GP record?


    The Hampshire Health Record processes uploaded personal confidential information for primary and secondary uses.

    Secondary uses are uses of existing data for purposes other than those for which they were originally obtained.

    For your GP record, this means making that information available, to anyone (not just within the NHS), for purposes other than providing your direct medical care.

    For further information about secondary uses, please visit www.nhsdatasharing.info

    Secondary uses optouts, such as for the national audits and risk stratification, do not automatically prevent uploading of your personal and confidential information to the HHR.

    You have the right to opt-out of The Hampshire Health Record entirely (at any time) and not allow your personal and identifiable information to be extracted from your GP record, uploaded, and processed for both primary and secondary purposes.

    Alternatively, you have the right to opt-out of secondary uses of your uploaded information. This will not stop your personal confidential information from being extracted, uploaded and used for primary purposes by the HHR, but will prevent any secondary uses of your uploaded information by the HHR, as well as preventing the extraction and secondary uses by other projects such as the National Audits, risk stratification, and sick note data extractions to the DWP.


    Organisations extracting and uploading your information to the HHR for secondary purposes:

    Organisations receiving data from the HHR, for secondary purposes include:

    The majority of secondary purposes are therefore of the analytics, commissioning, audit, and health management types.
    Medical research is but a small part of the secondary uses of the personal and sensitive data extracted from GP records.


    Back to index



    Opting out of secondary uses of my HHR information


    You have the right to opt-out of, or object to, secondary uses of your uploaded HHR information.

    You cannot control how your data is used for secondary purposes by the HHR, for example to whom that data is given, or for what reason, only prevent its use for such purposes entirely.

    Opting out of the HHR entirely (9Nd1) will ensure that either no personal confidential information about you from your GP record is extracted and uploaded, or that any already uploaded information is completely deleted and that no further information is uploaded.

    Opting out of the HHR entirely (9Nd1) will also ensure that no personal confidential information about you from your hospital record is stored in the HHR (it will be deleted upon arrival).

    Opting-out of either the HHR or secondary uses, or both, will not in any way affect the medical care that you receive from your GP surgery.

    All organisations must rely on a GDPR legal basis to process (extract and upload) your information to the HHR for seondary purposes.
    I will detail the legal basis that each organisation is relying upon as it becomes apparent.

    That legal basis comes with the right to object.

    If you want to out of just secondary uses of your uploaded information (whilst still permitting healthcare professionals access to it should you see them for direct medical care), then this is how:


    Back to index



    Do I need to opt out of the HHR if I have already opted out of the Summary Care Record ?


    The Hampshire Health Record and the Summary Care Record are two entirely separate databases.

    For further information about the Summary Care Record, please see my other site.

    If you have already opted out of the SCR, you will have the read code 9Ndo in your GP record.

    If your GP surgery runs EMIS software as its GP system then opting out of the SCR automatically opts you out of the HHR.


    "EMIS' approach is take the presence of 9Nd0 as sufficient to stop any data from leaving their system, so if this code is applied to a patient in an EMIS practice then their data will not be passed to Graphnet, irrespective of the logic in our extract service."

    Graphnet, the software that uploads data to the HHR


    So you do not need to additionally opt out of the HHR, though you can do so if you wish.

    But if your surgery does not run EMIS software, and instead runs software such as Vision, Synergy or SystmOne, then the SCR optout will not automatically opt you out of the HHR, and you will need to opt out separately as below.

    If in doubt, opt out.

    Opting-out of either scheme, or both, will not in any way affect the medical care that you receive from your GP surgery.


    Back to index



    Is the HHR the same as EMIS Web data sharing ?


    The Hampshire Health Record and EMIS Web data sharing are two entirely separate schemes.

    For further information about true, interoperable data streaming, including how to opt-out of it, please visit www.nhsdatasharing.info, or alternatively have a look at this example factsheet from North East Hampshire and Farnham.

    EMIS Web data streaming, sometimes referred to as the MIG, involves information from your GP record being "streamed" in real time and on-demand, meaning that data from your GP record is neither extracted, nor uploaded, nor sent anywhere. The data remains within the surgery database and select organisations, such as your local Accident and Emergency department or GP out-of-hours centre, are only allowed to "view" it.

    Since no information from your GP record is extracted or uploaded anywhere with data streaming, there are no secondary uses of the information made available.

    In contrast with the HHR, your GP surgery remains a true data controller, controls who has access to your information, and can monitor who has accessed your information.

    If data streaming is available in your area, then:

    Opting out of EMIS Web data streaming will, however, automatically opt you out of the Hampshire Health Record.

    Opting-out of either scheme, or both, will not in any way affect the medical care that you receive from your GP surgery.

    Can my GP surgery tell me when my HHR has been accessed, where, and by whom, or used for secondary puposes ?


    No.

    If you wish to find out when your HHR has been accessed by a healthcare professional - for primary purposes - you have to apply directly to NHS South, Central and West CSU, providing proof of identity.

    Details of how to do this can be found here.

    But you cannot find out if or when your HHR record was used for secondary purposes, what information about you was disseminated, or to whom, or for what purpose.

    How do I prevent hospitals and social care from uploading my data to the HHR?


    Medical data for every single patient treated or investigated at contributing trusts is exported to the HHR.

    Data:

    is nevertheless exported to the HHR (i.e. processed).

    If you wish to object to a particular organisation, other than your GP surgery, extracting and uploading your medical data to the HHR then here are the details.


    Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust ensures that patients can opt out of, or object to, having their information sent to the Hampshire Health Record. Just like your GP surgery, they can set an electronic flag on their database so that information derived from their Rio database system is not extracted and uploaded to the HHR for any given patient.

    Information about how Southern Health complies with the GDPR in ensuring that you can object to such processing can be found here.

    You can read about how Southern Health complies with the GDPR and the HHR, including legal bases and how to object, in this FOI response.

    If you wish, in addition to opting out of the HHR via your GP surgery, you can request that Southern Health does not extract and upload your information to the HHR database in the first place (albeit that the information would be ultimately deleted if you had opted out via your GP as well).

    Should you have need to see a clinician from Southern Health, for example a District Nurse or Health Visitor, you can ask them in person to opt you out, there and then on the Rio database.

    Alternatively, you can send your request to Southern Health, though you have to make that request by email.

    A suitable letter, including the email address to send it to, can be downloaded here, filled in, and attached with your email.

    You can also email their Data Protection Officer at shft.dataprotectionofficer@nhs.net

    In your email, state that:

    Remember to opt-out of the HHR at your GP surgery as well, unless you still want a Hampshire Health Record - but one that excludes information about you from Southern Health.

    Be reassured - these actions will in no way limit the ability for Southern Health clinical staff to access your Rio record as and when required.
    It just stops your information being extracted and uploaded in the first place (an action which has no purpose or justification if you have already opted out of the HHR via your GP surgery).


    Hampshire County Council is an organisation that does allow patients to directly opt-out of, or object to, having their information sent to the Hampshire Health Record.

    As detailed in this FOI response, the council relies upon Article 6(1)(a) - Consent to process personal information to the HHR.

    If you wish, in addition to opting out of the HHR via your GP surgery, you can request that Hampshire County Council does not extract and upload your information to the HHR database in the first place (albeit that the information would be ultimately deleted if you had opted out via your GP as well).

    You will need to download and fill in this form, and send it to Hampshire County Council (address is on the form). Section 1 has been already filled in to request that your information is not extracted and uploaded to the HHR, but you will need to fill in sections 2 and 3 as you see fit.

    The "Your Information" booklet, mentioned in the form, can be found here.

    You can also email them at adult.services@hants.gov.uk

    Remember to opt-out of the HHR at your GP surgery as well, unless you still want a Hampshire Health Record - but one that excludes information about you from Hampshire County Council.

    Be reassured - these actions will in no way limit the ability for Hampshire County Council staff to access any information that they hold about you on their database, as and when required.
    It just stops your information being extracted and uploaded in the first place (an action which has no purpose or justification if you have already opted out of the HHR via your GP surgery).


    Solent NHS Trust is an organisation that does allow patients to directly opt-out of, or object to, having their information sent to the Hampshire Health Record.

    As detailed in this FOI response, the trust relies upon Article 6(1)(e) to process personal information to the HHR.

    If you wish, in addition to opting out of the HHR via your GP surgery, you can request that Solent NHS Trust does not extract and upload your information to the HHR database in the first place (albeit that the information would be ultimately deleted if you had opted out via your GP as well).

    You will need to contact their Data Protection Officer or Information Governance Team, details in their fair processing leaflet.

    You can also email their Data Protection Officer at SNHS.SolentIGTeam@nhs. net

    In your email or letter, state that:

    Remember to opt-out of the HHR at your GP surgery as well, unless you still want a Hampshire Health Record - but one that excludes information about you from Solent NHS Trust.

    Be reassured - these actions will in no way limit the ability for Solent NHS Trust staff to access any information that they hold about you on their database, as and when required.
    It just stops your information being extracted and uploaded in the first place (an action which has no purpose or justification if you have already opted out of the HHR via your GP surgery).


    The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Trust, RBCH, is an organisation that does allow patients to directly opt-out of, or object to, having their information sent to the Hampshire Health Record.

    As detailed in this FOI response, the trust relies upon Article 6(1)(e) to process personal information to the HHR.

    If you wish, in addition to opting out of the HHR via your GP surgery, you can request that RBCH does not extract and upload your information to the HHR database in the first place (albeit that the information would be ultimately deleted if you had opted out via your GP as well).

    You will need to contact their Data Protection Officer or Information Governance Team, details in their fair processing leaflet.

    You can also email their Data Protection Officer at caldicott.guardian@rbch.nhs.uk

    In your email or letter, state that:

    Remember to opt-out of the HHR at your GP surgery as well, unless you still want a Hampshire Health Record - but one that excludes information about you from RBCH NHS Trust.

    Be reassured - these actions will in no way limit the ability for RBCH NHS Trust staff to access any information that they hold about you on their database, as and when required.
    It just stops your information being extracted and uploaded in the first place (an action which has no purpose or justification if you have already opted out of the HHR via your GP surgery).


    University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust is not planning to respect the right to object under Article 6(1)(e) of the GDPR from 25th May. They assert that all such patients must apply directly to the HHR office (their data processor) to opt out, as detailed in this FOI response. But this will opt you out of the HHR completely, including your GP record and all other contributing organisations.

    However, you are perfectly entitled to assert your data subject rights and request that they cease processing of your personal data in this way, i.e. you have the right to object as UHS is relying upon Article 6(1)(e) to process your data to the HHR.

    So, assuming you just want UHS to stop uploading to the HHR, and from 25th May, you can write to the UHS health records, or information, team. Their details can be found on this web page.

    You can also email their Data Protection Officer at hrcinfoteam@uhs.nhs.uk

    In your email or letter, state that:

    If UHS refuse to do so, or insist that you approach the HHR instead to opt out completely from the HHR, then you have the right to take the matter further to the Information Commissioner.

    Alternatively you can opt out of the HHR entirely via your GP surgery (see below).


    Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is also not planning to respect the right to object under Article 6(1)(e) of the GDPR from 25th May. They too assert that all such patients must apply directly to the HHR office (their data processor) to opt out, as detailed in this FOI response. But this will opt you out of the HHR completely, including your GP record and all other contributing organisations.

    However, you are perfectly entitled to assert your data subject rights and request that they cease processing of your personal data in this way, i.e. you have the right to object as HHNHSFT is relying upon Article 6(1)(e) to process your data to the HHR.

    So, assuming you just want HHNHSFT to stop uploading to the HHR, and from 25th May, you can write to the HHNHSFT Information Governance team, or the Data Protection Officer. Their address details can be found in this leaflet.

    You can also email their Data Protection Officer at customercare@hhft.nhs.uk

    In your email or letter, state that:

    If HHNHSFT refuse to do so, or insist that you approach the HHR instead to opt out completely from the HHR, then you have the right to take the matter further to the Information Commissioner.

    Alternatively you can opt out of the HHR entirely via your GP surgery (see below).


    Care UK does not provide an easy way for patients to express the right to object under Article 6(1)(e) of the GDPR. They do not make clear how to do this, with respect to their Portsmouth and Southampton treatment centres (which both extract and upload to the HHR).

    However, you are perfectly entitled to assert your data subject rights and request that they cease processing of your personal data in this way, i.e. you have the right to object as Care UK is relying upon Article 6(1)(e) to process your data to the HHR.

    So, assuming you just want Care UK to stop uploading to the HHR, you can write to the Care UK Information Governance team, or the Data Protection Officer. Their address details can be found in this leaflet.

    You can also email their Data Protection Officer at DPO@careuk.com

    In your email or letter, state that:

    If Care UK refuse to do so, or insist that you approach the HHR instead to opt out completely from the HHR, then you have the right to take the matter further to the Information Commissioner.

    Alternatively you can opt out of the HHR entirely via your GP surgery (see below).


    Portsmouth Hospitals NHS FT states that is does not rely upon any legal bases that provide a right to object to processing medical data to the HHR.

    However, you are perfectly entitled to make such an objection, despite their assertion.

    So, assuming you just want Portsmouth Hospitals NHS FT to stop uploading to the HHR, you can write to the Information Governance Manager. Their address details can be found on their Information Governance page.

    You can also email their Data Protection Officer at information.governance@porthosp.nhs.uk

    In your email or letter, state:

    If Portsmouth Hospitals NHS FT refuse to do so, or insist that you approach the HHR instead to opt out completely from the HHR, then you have the right to take the matter further to the Information Commissioner.

    Alternatively you can opt out of the HHR entirely via your GP surgery (see below).



    At any time, you can opt out of the HHR entirely via your GP surgery (see below).

    This will not stop your data being extracted and exported from your hospital or non-GP records, but will ensure that they are deleted upon arrival at the HHR database.

    Opting out of the HHR entirely will ensure that either no personal confidential information about you from your GP record is extracted and uploaded, or that any already uploaded information is "blanked" or made unavailable, and that no further information is uploaded.

    Opting out of the HHR entirely will also ensure that no personal confidential information about you from your hospital or other such record is stored in the HHR.

    You GP record, hospital record, and any other non-GP records, remain unaffected if you opt-out. They remain, as always, available to relevant clinical staff as required.

    How do I completely opt out of the HHR, or get my uploaded data made unavailable ?


    You have a choice. You do not have to allow your GP medical records to be uploaded to, or remain available via, the HHR database.

    GP surgeries will rely upon Article 6(1)(e) of the GDPR, from 25th May, and this comes with a right to object to such processing.


    If you discover that your records have been uploaded, and you wish to have them made unavailable, then you can.

    If you no longer want your records to be on the HHR, and you wish to have them made unavailable, then you can.

    If you do not want your records uploaded to the HHR and wish to prevent any such uploads, then you can.

    YOU can decide:

    You can change your mind and join, or rejoin, the HHR at any time.

    Opting out of the HHR will have no effect on your medical records as stored by your GP or local hospital.

    Opting out of the HHR will have no effect on the care that you receive from either your GP or your local hospital.

    In a FOI response, the HHR office has stated:

    All your GP has to do is to add the read code 9Nd1 or 93C1 into your records, either to prevent any upload to the HHR or to delete any uploaded data from the HHR should you discover that this has happened to your data.

    GP surgeries may prefer to add the 9Nd1 read code into your records, as the 93C1 code can have unintended consequences beyond that of simply prohibiting uploading of the GP record to the HHR. Your surgery will decide which code is appropiate - both are equally effective.

    Opting out will ensure that either no personal confidential information about you from your GP record is extracted and uploaded, or that any already uploaded information is "blanked" or made unavailable, and that no further information is uploaded.

    Opting out at your GP surgery will also ensure that no personal confidential information about you from your hospital or social care records is stored in the HHR (it will be deleted upon arrival).

    So opting out of the HHR at your GP surgery will completely opt you out of the HHR.

    ANY communication (in person, by letter, email, fax, telephone or text) to your GP stating your wish to opt out or have your data deleted is valid.

    You can opt out or delete your data using a simple opt-out letter for your GP:

    This form will allow you to opt-out of all of the NHS Databases or just the Hampshire Health Record, as you wish.

    Download the generic opt-out form in PDF format

    Download the generic opt-out form in DOC format

    Do NOT send your letter to the HHR office. Your GP is responsible for adding the code to your records.

    You can opt out or delete your data verbally (without an opt out form or letter) by:

    Once again, request that your GP adds the read code 9Nd1 or 93C1 into your records.

    Do NOT ring, email or attend the HHR office to opt out or delete your data. Your GP is responsible for adding the code to your records.

    And be reassured that:

    But please note : opting out of the HHR alone will not opt you out of either the Summary Care Record or secondary uses of your GP data, such as risk stratification or the national audits.

    You will need to opt out of these separately, or opt out of all of the NHS Databases at once (via www.nhsdatasharing.info ).

    Other ways to share your GP information


    When it comes to allowing healthcare professionals outside of your GP surgery access to information from your GP record, you have options:


    You can have any combination of the above, opting out of any particular data sharing schemes, and/or opting in to any that you wish to.

    You can find out about all of the NHS Databases, and other NHS data sharing schemes, via www.nhsdatasharing.info
