My Care Record has been extended to 15 GP Practices in the Epping Forest area who can now view patient information, including letters, test results and discharge summaries at Whipps Cross University Hospital (Barts Health Trust).

GPs can access the information through their normal systems which will help ensure that

there is more clinical time spent on patients, fewer tests, more accurate prescriptions and safe and secure decision-making. 

People in west Essex and east and north Hertfordshire are now benefiting from more efficient, joined-up care.

My Care Record allows clinicians at The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust in Harlow to view a patient’s medical history over a secure network. Initially the system was piloted in A&E but has now been rolled-out across the whole hospital.

People in west Essex will benefit from better, joined-up care thanks to a new programme which gives health and care professionals the ability to view medical records during treatment.

Health and care professionals need to access information in order to make the best decisions about a patient’s diagnosis and treatment. My Care Record will help this to happen more quickly and accurately. Before viewing the record, patients will be asked for their permission by the professional treating them. 

My Care Record information is now available from you GP surgery.

Look out for the posters, information cards and Frequently Asked Question booklets for more information or ask your GP.

We asked you what you thought about My Care Record; the process involved, the design of our awareness materials, the messages we’ve written and the information we provided in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). 

We spent an enjoyable afternoon discussing the process, listening to your feedback, suggestions and finding ways to improve the information we’ve provided.  We think we managed to included most of the suggestions received and we hope that the posters and information we will be producing will be easy to understand and answer all your questions.
