Wirral Care Record to be launched this September

New Wirral Care Record to provide secure, single health record system is to be launched this September, will provide NHS organisations with a totally confidential record. The new care record system is set to transform the way health and social care professionals within the area access information, or at least that is what he NHS and Wirral Council believe.

The Wirral Care Record can be used to store and share health and social care information in one secure environment. Information is already shared between NHS organisations, but having a single record will allow speedier access to important data and evolve the care provided to patients. Some benefits: having up-to-date information available to health practitioners instantly will mean less chance of information being duplicated, fewer delays in getting the right treatment and improved patient experience.

Dr Sue Wells, local GP and Medical Director of NHS Wirral CCG, says she is delighted that the Wirral Care Record will soon be launched. “We’ve spoken to lots of local people about our plans over the last six months, and I’ve been really encouraged by how overwhelmingly supportive they are of the idea of a single, up-to-date, digital care record shared by all care professionals across Wirral.”

Wells underlines te secure element of the care record system. Because it will only ever be accessed by care staff involved in their care, patients can be more reassured than ever before that their records and data are secure and confidential.

The first phase of the project, starting this autumn, will include patient data held by GP practices and Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in a single record. Community health data from Wirral Community NHS Foundation Trust, and mental health data from Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, along with data concerning social care packages a patient may have access to from Wirral Council, will be a part of the record by 2017.
