What is Your Care Connected?

Your Care Connected is a new electronic system which will allow doctors, nurses and other registered healthcare professionals to view relevant information from a patient’s GP record, with the patient’s consent, to provide better, safer care.

The programme is hosted by Birmingham Cross City CCG on behalf of the other local CCGs (Birmingham South Central CCGSandwell and West Birmingham CCG and Solihull CCG).

The benefits of the system are:

  • Faster and easier access to medical information, which could save lives
  • More secure than the current paper-based access
  • Improves the safety and quality of patient care
  • Gives patients more control over their care
  • Enables safer delivery of emergency care
  • Less time spent on the phone and fax providing or requesting patient information
