 People in west Hertfordshire will shortly benefit from better, joined-up care thanks to a My Care Record.

Initially, My Care Record will be available at Watford General A&E Department and further departments will follow.


Dr Jon Hykin, Herts Valleys CCG Chief Clinical Information Officer, said:

“As part of the ‘Your Care, Your Future’ programme, people in west Hertfordshire told us they wanted to see better joined-up care.  Since then, we have made good progress in bringing together health and care services in order to improve the experience of patients.

“Our next step is to ensure that health and care professionals directly involved in a person’s care have access to the most up-to-date information about them. This will help ensure professionals have more time to spend on clinical care and reduce the repetition and paperwork.”

Patients can opt out through their GP surgery if they do not want to make their information available.
