On Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 March, Stancliffe Pharmacy in Bramhope will be running a two day pilot for Leeds Care Record. Leeds Care Record is a confidential computer record containing key information from your GP, hospital, mental health and community health records.
If you visit the pharmacy on the 16 or 17 March you will be asked by the pharmacist whether they can access your Leeds Care Record, it is your choice whether you consent.
The purpose of the pilot is to test whether giving pharmacists access to information held within the Leeds Care Record improves patient outcomes and the project team will be evaluating whether it has worked following the pilot.
Information that is shared and may be useful for the pharmacist to see includes:
- Address and telephone number
- Medications – so everyone treating you can see what medicines you’ve currently or have been prescribed
- Allergies and adverse reactions – to make sure you aren’t prescribed or given any medicines you could have an adverse reaction to
- Test results
- Discharge information – to make sure the people caring for you have all the information they need about other treatment you’re having elsewhere
“We are pleased to be assisting in the development of the Leeds Care Record by participating in this two day pilot because I believe this will help us to deliver safer care to our patients.”
