Information about sharing your health record

For workers in health or social care, easy access to patient information is critical to support decision-making about patient care and treatment, especially in situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic. This is where the GM Care Record comes in.

The GM Care Record pulls vital patient data from several areas, including:

·      primary care

·      community services

·      mental health services

·      social care

·      secondary care

·      specialist services e.g. NWAS

It’s an extension of integrated care records already live in various localities of Greater Manchester. However, it collates patient information from across Greater Manchester into one place, making it easily accessible for health and care workers to inform direct care from across geographies and organisations.

The amount of data that the GM Care Record holds is increasing all the time. Data is constantly being added, so that a combined record can be developed for all our citizens to help better decision making and more informed care and treatment.

This Practice shares some of your patient data to form part of the GM Care Record for your direct care. If you have any questions or concerns about the GM Care Record then please contact the Practice Manager, Tanya Burton or email [email protected]
