Leeds Care Record
Leeds Care Record is a joined-up digital care record which enables clinical and care staff to view real-time health and care information across care providers and between different systems. It is a secure computer system that brings together certain important information about patients who have used services provided by their GP, at a local hospital, community healthcare, social services or mental health teams.
How does it work?
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 is held on a secure computer system and includes 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.
"The rolling out of Leeds Care Record is an exciting time for health and social care professionals across the city. As a GP it will be so helpful to see up to date and complete health records from across all the organisations that are dealing with patients in your care. It will allow for a more joined up approach with the ultimate aim of providing an even better service. "
