Cheshire Care Record
This is a project involving all GP, hospital, community, mental health and social care services provided in Cheshire. The Service streamlines summary health and social care information into one digital record so you don’t have to deep repeating your medical or social care history. Your shared record includes information such as test results, medication, allergies and social or mental health information relevant to your care. All information is held securely and will not be shared with other organisations. It is important to note that your information can only be accessed if you have given your consent. The Cheshire Care Record is a multi-agency initiative, with organisations involved including four CCGs, Cheshire East Council, East Cheshire NHS Trust and other providers of social care, mental health and cancer services across Cheshire.
