Access to health records by diagnostic staff
Our pathology and radiology staff who have a role in patient care have access to the Care and Health Information Exchange (CHIE).
CHIE contains information extracted from your GP and hospital records. Clinical diagnostics staff within pathology and radiology, who are involved with your healthcare, will sometimes need to access your records to benefit your care.
Access to this system is in accordance with guidance from the National Information Governance Board for Health and Social Care.
If you would like to opt out of CHIE, please find more information on how to do this on the CHIE website.
