The DSA is now ready to be distributed to firms after being audited and verified by independent legal experts appointed by Dr Robert Morley on behalf of Birmingham LMC. Lawyers specializing in information governance in primary procurement were convinced that the risk to information exchange practices on the Your Care Connected program was very low, with the potential benefits to our patients far outweighing this low risk. A Common Care Agreement (SAC) provides avenues for allocating drug prescribing management responsibilities between the specialist and the family physician. The common use of care involves communication between the specialist, the family physician and the patient (and/or the caregiver). The intention to share care must be explained to the patient by the doctor who introduces the treatment. It is important that patients are consulted on treatment and agree. Patients receiving the given medication should be followed regularly, which provides opportunities to discuss drug therapy. MPs and NHS leaders in the Midlands have teamed up to honour health and care staff who have helped improve patient treatment. Looking for a career that makes a difference? The „We are the NHS“ campaign is back and sheds light on some of the… the Caldicott Guardian appointed by your firm must verify, sign and return the DSA if your firm intends to share information about your Care Connected.

The signing of the DSA also allows us to send mail to your patients to alert them to your related care. We will provide them with information clear enough to make an informed decision about whether service data should be shared when they visit one of the participating secondary services. As members of the NHS, we have a duty not only to protect our patient data, but also to share information where it is legal, safe and secure, in order to improve the direct management of our patients. Our ASD has been developed in this direction and we have worked with the LMC and the BMA to ensure that we protect the interests of all those responsible for processing (which is our practice in this case). We also consulted with the Information Commissioner`s Office, the Medical Defence Associations and the General Medical Council. Your advice and instructions have been reflected in the DSA and you can read Birmingham LMC`s response here. Key decision-makers will have the opportunity to contribute to and co-produce new guidelines. In addition, to date, 39 effective Shared Care Agreements (AEPs) and 26 Rationales for Initiation Continuation and Discontinuation (RICaDs) have been revised and published.

These documents support the secure transfer of prescription from secondary to primary care for the benefit of patients.
