My Care Record
My Care Record allows health and care professionals directly involved in your care, access to information about you.
The people caring for you need access to your health and care record in order to make the best decisions about your diagnosis and treatment. This could include GPs, hospital-based clinicians, nurses, health visitors and social workers. For this to happen more quickly and to improve the care you receive, a process has been put in place using existing computer systems. This allows your information to be accessed by health and care clinicians and professionals within local health and care organisations that are providing you with care.
This does not share your record, but provides health and care clinicians and professionals access to view information relevant to your care and treatment.
If you wish to opt out of the care record, please complete our online Opt Out form.
