The Department and National Health Service organisations have been working closely with the Information Commissioner’s Office and the British Medical Association to support TPP to take appropriate action to respond to the TPP SystmOne data sharing issue. This work should be fully implemented by the summer. There is no evidence that records have been lost, mislaid or misused. However, there are already a number of mitigations in place to prevent potential misuse of information:
- Users’ access to records is role based and requires a smart card or password to access the system;
- All record accesses and all registrations are audited and visible to the general practitioner; and
- Patients (via SystmOnline) can now have visibility of when and where their records have been accessed.
