What are people saying about the Leeds Care Record?

Dr Yen Andersen
GP Partner, Oakwood Lane Medical Practice

Leeds Care Record brilliantly opens up an effective communication path at the simple touch of a button.

As a busy GP, I no longer need to rely on a busy GP receptionist, a hospital secretary or a ward clerk to answer the phone, and to then tell my story and what information I am searching for.

It is great to get the information straightaway.

Dr Jason Broch
GP - Oakwood Lane Medical Practice

The continuing roll out and expansion of the Leeds Care Record is an exciting time for health and social care professionals across the city.

As a GP it is so helpful to see up to date and complete health records from across all the organisations that are dealing with patients in your care.

Tim Denman
Emergency Medicine Pharmacist, Leeds Teaching Hospitals

The introduction of Summary Care Record was a great improvement in helping us. The Leeds Care Record builds on this and provides many additional benefits, so much so that our processes have been updated to maximise the benefits of an integrated care record. Pharmacy staff work much more efficiently and more patients are able to benefit from the input of the Pharmacy team.

Leeds Care Record is about making the information available via a different format and changing the old paper methods which are unsecure.

The less time spent messing around looking for information the more care we can give.

I can view if my patient has any known problems or existing medications that could effect their new medication I prescribe. Compared to traditional methods such as telephoning the GP or the telephoning of the lab this is a much more effective use of time.
