EMIS WEB UPGRADE PROGRAMME - INFORMATION REGARDING OUR CLINICAL SYSTEM PROVIDER'S UPGRADE TO AMAZON WEB SERVICE:


Practice News: The Practice uses a system called EMIS Web to manage clinical information about your care and health.


This system is provided by a company called EMIS Health LTD who acts as a data processor on behalf of the Practice. EMIS Health LTD also uses a sub-processor which is Amazon Web Services (sub-processor) who act under written instruction from EMIS Health LTD to store the data. Under no circumstances is it technically possible for Amazon Web Services to access any information about you. Should you have any concerns or queries please do not hesitate to contact the Practice.


STATEMENT FROM EMIS WEB: 


Third party processors


In order to deliver the best possible service, the practice will share data (where required) with other NHS bodies such as other GP practices and hospitals. In addition the practice will use carefully selected third party service providers. When we use a third party service provider to process data on our behalf then we will always have an appropriate agreement in place to ensure that they keep the data secure, that they do not use or share information other than in accordance with our instructions and that they are operating appropriately. Examples of functions that may be carried out by third parties includes:



  • Companies that provide IT services & support, including our core clinical systems; systems which manage patient facing services (such as our website and service accessible through the same); data hosting service providers; systems which facilitate appointment bookings or electronic prescription services; document management services etc.

  • Delivery services (for example if we were to arrange for delivery of any medicines to you).

  • Payment providers (if for example you were paying for a prescription or a service such as travel vaccinations).

NHS Blood and Transplant Donors

What We Do

Our work is dedicated to saving and improving lives.

We provide a Blood and Transplant service to the NHS which means supplying enough safe blood to hospitals in England and North Wales and providing tissues and solid organs to hospitals across the UK, and we can't do it alone. Each year our donors give around two million donations of blood and 3,500 organs – saving and transforming countless lives.

Safeguarding blood supply and increasing the number of donated organs involves collecting, testing, processing, storing and delivering blood, plasma and tissue to every NHS Trust in England and North Wales. We also match, allocate, audit and analyse organ donations across the whole of the UK.

Surgeons preparing for theatre

We are privileged to have some of the world's most modern and innovative facilities at our blood and tissue centres. We are also privileged to have the support of so many amazing donors – for blood, tissues and organs. Our centres receive and process these blood and tissue donations under tight guidelines with incredible efficiency – ensuring that products are successfully delivered to the hospitals that need them every day.

As a Special Health Authority in England and Wales – accountable to the Department of Health – we are responsible for managing all the products and services previously provided by the National Blood Authority and UK Transplant, including:

  • Promoting blood, tissue and organ donation to the public
  • Managing the supply of blood to hospitals in England and North Wales
  • Managing organ transplantation in the UK
  • Managing the British Bone Marrow Register
  • Working with hospital colleagues to promote the safe and appropriate use of blood
  • Providing a range of tissues and other services to hospitals
  • Provision of a wide range of diagnostic services

You can find out more about the scope of our work, our donors, the patients we serve, and how you can be a part of saving lives through donation in the sections on this website.
