A Thames Valley and Surrey Care Records Partnership event, partnering with Digital Health Networks
Stakeholders from across the geography came together on 5 November for the TVS Care Records Partnership and Digital Health Networks event. Almost 100 delegates joined us in discussions, debate and heard from experts in the fields of health and digital development.
The agenda from the event is available here and copies of the presentations and video shown on the day are shown below, along with the Q&A.

This new animation which features a clinical scenario and was developed with clinical input, was played to delegates at the event to reinforce how innovations in digital health can transform patient care:
Q&As from the Event
We are exploring a range of benefits for urgent care, such as:
- the value for 111 and 999 call handlers of accessing the shared record and Care Plan info.
- Paramedic access to vital care plan information.
- Emergency Department clinicians & Out of Hours access to essential information for out of area patients (ie data not available through a local shared record).
- The Population Health intelligence value of integrating Ambulance data into the longitudinal care record.
- The Population Health intelligence value of a regional wide data-set to support identification of patterns of demand and patient flow, and provide detailed cohort analysis eg on high frequency users of multiple Emergency Departments.
- Child safeguarding - information available in care settings about episodes of care elsewhere that might alert safeguarding risks.
We have a benefits workstream and are working to develop further the links with ICS and ICP programmes so that the enabling capabilities of the TVS care records platform can be exploited locally. Clinical engagement and advice to the programme is also developing through the appointment of up to 8 Health and Care Professional Advisors.
The information shared will include key topics such as diagnosed health conditions, medications, allergies and adverse reactions, test results, referrals, clinical letters and discharge information, care plans and contact details.This information will only be viewed by authorised professionals directly involved in your care. Role-based Access Control (RAC) restricts the level of access each professional gets based on the job that they undertake relating to your care.
TVS focused on building the partnership across the region, deciding on a strategy for developing the shared-records platform, collaborating on addressing the Information Governance issues and linking with local care systems on the benefits that the programme can support.
People can object under GDPR to their personal data being processed in the TVS care records system – the way that any objections are lodged and handled is currently being developed and will be published on the TVS website www.thamesvalleysurreycarerecords.net. Opt-outs to local shared records programme will be observed in the TVS care records, so if a patient is opted out of Connected Care for example, that opt-out will also apply in the wider TVS platform.
The agenda has also had presentations from Surrey Heartlands, Berkshire West as well as Frimley ICS. I hope this reflects a good range of examples.
