What is the Cheshire Care Record?

The Cheshire Care Record is an overview of your health and social care information in one digital record.

Whether you are visiting your GP, attending hospital, or being seen in your own home by a community nurse or social worker, we want you to get the best care but we can only do this if all the health and social care professionals involved in your care have access to the information they need.

Your shared health and social care information will include test results, medications, allergies and social or mental health information.

By sharing a summary of the information included in your health and social care records they can provide better care.

For more information on the Cheshire Care Record, you can read the leaflet.

This means

  • You don’t have to keep repeating your medical or social care history
  • Care professionals have access to the right information when they need it
  • We can reduce duplicate appointments and tests
  • You will receive the right treatment and care more quickly.

By having an overview of your care, GPs, hospital doctors, nurses, social workers and other health and social care professionals can make the best decisions about your diagnosis, treatment and care plan.
