    Hi, I want to check about uploading accurx messages used to consent patients as they include the patient's name, NHS number and DOB. Is it acceptable to upload a screen shot of this or would it breach confidentiality?

    Thanks

    Hi Raghad – Consent evidence that is uploaded to our system has the same level of security as the consultation recording itself, so this would be covered by our data protection documentation at https://www.fourteenfish.com/datasecurityforpractices in the section "How will the recordings be stored?". We will update this documentation soon to make it clear that this also covers any attachments.

    Great, so I'll be able to use the screen shots of patient's messages with their details as proof of consent. Thanks

    Hi Phil,

    In terms of consent on a video consultation, if the patient is elderly and has a family member helping them with their phone, if they consent at the start and end on the fourteen fish platform, would I also need the family members consent on the recording verbally? Even if they knew the consultation was going to be recorded? And if so could I get the family members consent as a text message after the consultation if I haven't verbally checked with them on the fourteen fish recording. As it stands even if I did this, are we able to upload a consent form to a recording recorded directly on the fourteenfish platform?

    Sheraz Mohammed Yasin – That's a good question. I will speak to the RCGP about this but since we are getting close to the submission deadline it might be worth you contacting the RCGP Exams team yourself to get a quick answer (exams@rcgp.org.uk or 020 3188 7660).
