David introduced high Peak Information Sharing Project
A local project to link 8 practices so that when patients attend hospital/walk-in clinic as an emergency the attendant professional can access a summary sheet of the patient’s medication allergies etc. This is not open access to records and the patient’s permission would need to be sought at the point of contact. The project is to be trailed in Buxton during November and if all is ok go live for the HighPeak early 2013.

Following the meeting:
Rob has set up a closed facebook page you can only read and respond to if you are a member – to become a member you request and are accepted by administrators – at present he is the only member and this can be deleted if we choose to delete. Please can we discuss at the next meeting. This could be a good way of ascertaining views of some patients
