What is the Derbyshire Shared Care Record?

At present, health and social care organisations in Derbyshire hold different sets of records about you. Information in different records may be duplicated or incomplete. The Derbyshire Shared Care Record is a new confidential computer record that will join up different records to create a more comprehensive and up-to-date record about you. Over time this will help improve the care you receive.

What kind of information could be shared?

  • Your up-to-date personal contact details and care needs
  • List of diagnosed conditions – so health or social care professionals have a better understanding of your care needs
  • Medications – so everyone treating you knows what medicines you’ve been prescribed
  • Allergies – to make sure you aren’t given medicine that might give you an adverse reaction
  • Test results – to speed up your treatment and care
  • Referrals, clinic letters and discharge information – to make sure the people caring for you have all the information they need.

Why do you need to share this information?

Within some services, information is already shared. Having the ability under the Derbyshire Shared Care Record to access the same information and share it more readily will allow medical and social care professionals to decide more quickly what treatment you may need and the best way to help and care for you. This will help provide you with better health and social care.
