To provide the best possible care, health and social care professionals need the most up to date information about you.
Your health and social care records are now shared with the professionals involved in your care. Together, we care for nearly one million people in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. Sharing your digital records with the people who look after you gives them the most up-to-date information about you and makes your care safer and more efficient.
These pages tell you everything you need to know about the changes taking place and the security of your personal information. If you are happy for your information to be shared locally in this way, you do not need to do anything further.
Find out why Connecting Care means safer and faster treatment, reduced duplication of tests, and a much more joined-up approach to the care you receive.
How does it work?
This page explains how the digital care record system called Connecting Care provides secure access to important information held by your GP, hospitals, and other health and social care organisations.
