Other NHS projects

Connecting Care makes it possible to share information instantly to support your care.  It creates an ‘integrated digital care record’ for people who are registered with a GP working in Bristol, North Somerset or South Gloucestershire.

You may also have heard about a national project known as Summary Care Records. This is very different to Connecting Care.

Summary Care Record

Unlike Connecting Care, a Summary Care Record does not provide a complete picture of your health and social care. NHS Choices has more information about Summary Care Record
