My Care Record

My Care Record is an approach to improving care by joining up health and care information.

Your GP, hospital, community health, mental health and social care teams may all hold records about your care separately. Often, only health and care professionals within the same organisation can see this information.

This means it can be difficult for them to work together to deliver the best care. When information is made available in a more joined-up way, health and care professionals can provide faster, more effective care for you and your family.

Health and care organisations in our region are working together to implement a new approach called My Care Record. Wherever possible, health and care professionals will be able to access your records from other services when it is needed for your care. For example, a doctor treating you in hospital or a nurse working in the community could view the information they need from your GP record.
