The Cheshire Care Record is a project involving all GP, hospital, community, mental health and social care services provided in Cheshire.  The service streamlines health and social care information into one digital record so that you don't have to keep repeating your medical or social care history.

Your shared record includes information such as test results, medications, allergies or social or mental health information relevant to your care.  All information is held securely and will not be shared with any other organisations.  It is important to note that your information will only be accessed if you have given your consent.

The Cheshire Care Record is a multi-agency initiative, with organisations involved including Cheshire's four CCGs, Cheshire East Council, East Cheshire NHS Trust - which runs the hospitals in Macclesfield, Congleton and Knutsford, and other providers of social care, mental health and cancer services across Cheshire.
