What Your Care Connected means to Secondary Care

"Your Care Connected is a real breakthrough in working cooperatively with general practice and is of benefit to us all. Hospitals will get immediate and up-to-date access to information held in GP systems, and practices will no longer need to routinely send this information to hospitals, in turn saving valuable time. Patients will get a better quality of care thanks to hospitals having access to this vital information which will aid in clinical decision making."

What are the benefits for your organisation?

  • Faster and easier access to the patient's GP record, which could help save lives - especially in emergency situations
  • Reduce appointment times and delays by having the information you need to hand when you need it most
  • Reduce the need to duplicate unnecessary tests by viewing recent test results directly from the GP
  • Help deliver safer care in an emergency by providing information about medication and allergies

Your Care Connected can be used when:

  • You are on one of the registered and approved lists of users within your organisation
  • You have a direct relationship with the patient i.e. you are involved in their treatment
  • The patient has been referred from their GP practice 
  • The patient is present and has given you their permission to view their record
  • The patient is present and you have invoked the emergency 'break glass' procedure when the patient is unable to give permission but access is in their best interests
  • Access is not available if the patient has opted out at their practice
