What is My Care Record

My Care Record is a programme which allows you to give health and care professionals permission to access your medical records during your treatment.

The people caring for you need to access information about your health and care, 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 new process has been put in place. This will allow your information to be accessed by different health and care organisations, using existing computer systems.

This does not share your record, but provides health and care professionals, with your permission, access to view your information.

Information will only be accessed with your permission and while you are receiving treatment by a health and care professional.

This would include allowing a hospital doctor to see the medication that a GP has prescribed for you when you go into hospital or allowing a GP to see what care, tests or treatment you received while in hospital.
