How does having my records shared benefit me?
The benefits to you include:
- not having to repeat your details every time you need care.
- better and, potentially, faster treatment as the professionals caring for you will be able to quickly see your records.
- clinicians will be able to see what medications you're taking, what you've taken in the past, and if you have any allergies, making your treatment safer.
- more effective treatment should you need care for COVID-19, thanks to the fast availability of accurate information about any pre-existing conditions you might have and your medications.
