Health Information Exchange: working to join up health and care records in north central London
20 August 2019
As part of a North London Partners collaboration, we are joining up your health and care records to improve the local services you receive.
What does this mean for you? Being able to see your health and social care records at any time and in different places means health and care professionals can make quicker and safer decisions about your care.
Health and care professionals have shared information on paper for many years – we now plan to do this using digital technology.
GP practices and other health and care organisations are joining up the electronic records of all adults and children across Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington (north central London) so that those delivering care can understand all your needs and make the best decisions about your care with you.
If you do not want to be part of this, you can opt out.
