Changes to Clinical System Services

The provider of our clinical system - EMIS Health, is changing certain technical aspects of the way in which it delivers services to us, and as part of this transition it will be moving the data which it hosts on our behalf from its own data centre to a third party data centre, which is owned and operated by Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Delivery of the services is assessed to ensure it is secure and appropriate through NHS Digital on behalf of the Secretary of State for Health.

The exercise will involve a change to the manner in which data is being processed on our behalf.

 

The practice has reviewed the change and our Data Protection Officer has concluded that the change does not represent a high risk to individuals (which would necessitate the undertaking of a a full impact assessment), given that the data includes health data we wanted to undertake a full review to provide our patients with reassurance.
