Our practice is now part of My Care Record, supporting the delivery of joined-up care. During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, additional measures are being put in place to help health and care providers to deliver effective care. This includes how the information from your care records is used.
My Care Record is an approach to improving care by joining up health and care information. Wherever possible, health and care professionals will be able to access care records from other services if it is needed to deliver care for individuals with COVID-19 or COVID-19 symptoms.
For example, we are working to make sure doctors, nurses and co-ordination staff at places you may receive advice and treatment can see important information from your GP record. This will include health and care professionals at neighbouring GP practices, NHS 111 and regional centres for the treatment of critically ill patients including the NHS Nightingale Hospital in London.
This will make it easier and faster for them to deliver effective care for you if it is needed. Please visit www.mycarerecord.org.uk for more information, including the privacy notice to support this work.
