Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG)
Whilst the ‘Summary Care Record’ (SCR) system makes a very small portion of your medical record available across the whole NHS (and can be viewed by a range of staff in an emergency), the MIG shares a much fuller view of your records but only with local NHS providers – and only when you give explicit consent to a doctor or nurse at the point of care. This local scheme is administered by our local I.T. Service Commissioners who have produced a poster and factsheet (click on link below) to inform you of these processes. If you should like to opt-out of the MIG entirely please let us know and we will add a code to your notes that will prevent any data uploads.
