Who will be able to look at my information – and what will they see?

The first phase of the Shared Care Record will allow health and care professionals directly involved in your care to view:

  • your GP practice medical record.
  • basic hospital care and mental health information.

Being able to see this information will help them give you the best care as quickly as possible without having to make phone calls or wait for other organisations to forward details on.

We are carrying on developing the ShCR, allowing professionals across more health and social care settings to see information when they need it to support people's care.

You can rest assured we’ll only allow your records to be seen by health and social care professionals directly involved in your care.

There are strict rules around how we use your information.

As part of this work, we’ll make sure it’s managed and shared appropriately and in line with all legal requirements, including the General Data Protection Regulationand the Data Protection Act 2018.

Official inspections, or audits, will check this is the case.
