Connect Care: how we use your information
What is Connect Care?
In the past health and social care workers from the local organisations involved in your care did not have a system in place to share important information about your care automatically. This meant that GPs, hospital staff, district nurses, occupational therapists, and others involved in your care did not always have immediate access to all the information needed to provide timely and efficient care.
To address this, in 2015 a new local electronic record system was launched; this system is called Connect Care. Connect Care allows important information about you to be shared securely so that it can be viewed quickly and safely by staff directly involved in your care, such as GPs, hospital staff, district nurses, occupational therapists and social workers. This will enable them to make more informed decisions about your care and treatment.
