Public Health England (PHE) has advised the public to ensure they have had two doses of MMR (measles, mumps & rubella) vaccine after outbreaks of measles have been confirmed across England. Anyone who is not sure if they are fully vaccinated is being advised to check with their GP practice. There have been 440 laboratory confirmed measles cases in England between 1 January 2018 and 9 May 2018. The increase in measles circulation is mainly associated with travel to and from Europe where there are large ongoing measles outbreaks.

All health organisations must, by law, share information with each other about patients they are caring for directly, to improve the care provided. They must also use a patient's NHS number as a consistent identifier when sharing data or information about them. This was set out in the Health and Social Care (Safety and Quality) Act 2015, which aimed to reduce anxiety about data sharing. The 2013 Caldicott Review found that in some cases this anxiety meant patient information was not shared, even when sharing would have been in the best interest of the patient.
NHS Digital have produced guidance to help put these duties into practice, so that patients receive the best possible care, while their information is protected.
At our practice we use a computer system called SystmOne. This computer system is used by various different health organisations, enabling them to view patients records for patients who under their care. Our patients have a choice whether these organisations (which use the same system as ours) can view their GP Health Record. Ultimately the choice is the patients. Patients can choose to not share their records with these other health care organisations who are involved in their care if they wish. Our advise would be to share, as this will result in better / safer clinical care.
As a practice we will share records to other organisations who care for you, if you have not set any preferences with us, as we are only sharing to those health organisations who look after our patients.
