Alzheimer’s Society Newsletter: Launch of medical record system

The Leeds Care Record is being rolled out across Leeds with the aim of improving care for people who use NHS and social care services.

There are over 300 clinical computer systems in Leeds. They all hold clinical information about patients who have used services provided by their GP, at a local hospital, community healthcare, social services or mental health teams. Each record may hold slightly different information. The Leeds Care Record will bring together certain important information from all of these systems so that medical and care information held about a patient or service user can be centralised into one easy-to-use database.

All of your records will still be strictly confidential. They will only be looked at by health and social care professionals who are directly involved in your care.
