The Cheshire Care Record is a summary care record that gives care providers a quick holistic view of your care from all health and social care services in Cheshire. It is a collaboration between GPs, hospitals, community care, mental health and social care services across Cheshire to provide health and social care information in one digital record.
Your shared health and social care information will include test results, medications, allergies and social or mental health information relevant to your care.
The professionals treating you will be able to look at computer records of the care you are receiving from other organisations, including your GP or the hospital.
Who can access my record?
Your information will only be accessed by health and social care professionals, if you have given your consent. You will be asked for this consent the first time that a health or social care professional wishes to view your record.
You can inform us at any time if you don’t want your information to be shared and a Cheshire Care Record will not be created for you. You can change your mind at any time and we will ‘opt’ you back in.
