Connect Care: How We Use Your Information
What is Connect Care?
In the past health and social care workers from the local organisations involved in your care, did not have a system place to share important information about your care automatically. This meant that GP's, Hospital Staff, District Nurses, Occupational Therapists and Others involved in your care, did not always have immediate access to all the information needed to provide timely and efficient care.
To address this in 2015, a new local electronic record system was launched, this system is called Connect Care.
