Health and social care workers from the local organisations involved in your care now have a way of accessing information held by your GP, to help with your healthcare.
Connect Care, a system which Oxleas and GPs in Greenwich and Bexley are signed up to, means GPs, hospital staff, district nurses, occupational therapists, and others involved in your care can have immediate and secure access to your records to help them when treating you
The project was launched by Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust in 2015, with the aim of bringing together records, giving clinicians a fuller picture of the patient’s health.
This could include current medication or a child’s immunisation record.
From the GP record, our clinicians will be able to see problems, diagnoses, medications, investigations, events, encounters, admissions and referrals.
Patients are encouraged to be in the scheme, although they can opt out if they wish.
