How is my information protected?

Ultimately more than 12,500 staff will have access to the computer system to look at the records of the residents they are working with.  Due to confidential nature of the information the system needs to be highly secure.  All participating organisations have to meet stringent security standards to be able to use the system. These security standards and organisational compliance are regularly reviewed.

The computer system used by clinicians and other professionals to access your shared record is known as Connected Care. It is a highly secure clinical record system, which means that only qualified and regulated professionals who are authorised to use the system can access your records.

All current legislation and guidance on confidentiality, including the Data Protection Act 2018, has been met, and all organisations sharing or viewing your data have signed a detailed information sharing agreement.
