The 'Bolton Care Record' or 'BCR' is now in Bolton and all practices are participating.
This is a Shared Care Record that will help the NHS and adult and childrens social care services in Bolton work better together and as a result the benefits will be;
- Joined up care which is safer;
- More time spent on you and your care instead of going over the same information over and over again;
- More effective record sharing to help services work better together and potentially reducing hospital stays so you can get home sooner;
- You wont have to remember all your medications - it will be there in your record.
Using BCR is now classed as 'Direct Patient Care'. Only coded information is visible for those viewing and of course all information is confidential and only available to those who need to view it. You will also be asked permission before anyone views your record at the point of patient care.
However if you wish to opt out of this service then please contact the practice.
