The Leeds Care Record
The Leeds Care Record will provide health and social care professionals directly involved in your care access to the most up-to-date information about you. It does this by sharing appropriate information from your medical and care records between health and social care services in Leeds.
At the moment, every health and social care organisation that you use has a different set of patient records for you. These records may duplicate information, or one record might hold information about your treatment, care and support that another one does not.
In Leeds, we have developed a virtual system called the Leeds Care Record. If you live in Leeds you will have a Leeds Care Record created for you. It will be held on a secure computer system where access is strictly controlled and will include some key health and social care information about you. The information is taken from other medical records you may have such as your GP record, hospital records or social care records.
