Connect Care is live – sharing clinical data to help our patients

Connect Care logo (news)

A system to enable sharing of clinical data to improve patient care has gone live this week.

Connect Care links to Greenwich and Bexley borough GPs and is an easy-to-use, secure system that brings together key healthcare information in one place.

All of the Greenwich GPs are signed up and by November, all of our Bexley GPs will be too. 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 your patient notes, 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.
