SPIRE

Scottish Primary Care Information Resource (SPIRE)

SPIRE has been developed to help doctors, the National Health Service (NHS) in Scotland and researchers to learn more from patient information held at GP practices. They will use it to help all NHS patients in Scotland. So information from your medical records – and those of millions of other people in Scotland – will help medical professionals to improve the quality of care for all patients, plan services, develop new treatments, find out about side-effects and respond to major epidemics.


SPIRE moves information electronically and securely, from GP practice records to NHS National Services (NSS). They will then use SPIRE and other IT systems to give better information to the NHS in Scotland, and to approved researchers.

The doctors at this practice have agreed to let SPIRE use patient information and we want to assure patients that tight security checks are in place to keep your information safe.


How SPIRE protects your privacy
• if researchers need to identify you, they will ask your permission
• the Scottish Government will not be able to see your personal information
• personal information will not be sold to make money
• it uses only selected and coded parts of the health record, not the whole record
• staff and researchers are carefully trained and are only allowed to use the least    information they need for each project. Only a small number of authorised staff can find out who the information is about
• researchers from outside NHSScotland must be independently approved

Choosing not to take part in SPIRE
If you do not want your health information to be used, please fill in this form Opt out form and return it to the practice.

When you have done that, NSS will not get any personal information from the practice's health records. You can choose not to take part, or you can change your mind and take part at any time. Your choice will not affect the care you get from your GP practice or hospital.
