London Care Record

With the progress of data sharing across London and beyond, the system formerly known as “Connect Care” has been renamed to “The London Care Record”.

The London Care Record enables health and care staff to have one secure view of a person’s relevant heath and care information. Even if a person’s details are held in other London care organisations, information can still be accessed safely and securely. For example, if someone from Barnes (South West London) attends A&E at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital (North West London), staff involved can access the information they need to treat that person quickly and safely. This could include information on allergies, current medications, or existing long-term conditions.

Information is transferred securely, via a health information exchange system – this enables more effective care at the first point of contact.
