What is 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.
Over time, it will mean they will be able to see all the information they need, such as test results, to help you when you need it. It will mean that you do not have to repeat your story many times. As well as saving you time, it will also help to save time for the health and care professionals working with you.
