How we use your informationShow sub-pages
Connecting Care is a local electronic patient record that allows health and social care professionals directly involved in your care, to share a summary of your medical record.
Your Connecting Care record will help those caring for you to manage your care better, and allow information to be shared quickly and safely.
Only authorised staff providing health services across Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset can access your record. It does not contain information about discussions you have had with your GP, or any information on sensitive subjects such as sexual health.
Connecting Care only shares:
- who is involved in your care
- any allergies you have
- your medications
- recent appointments you have attended
Under the Data Protection Act you are able to ask to see any information held about you. If you wish to see the health information held about you, please contact the organisation(s) providing your care.
