Ever wondered why, when you visit your GP or a hospital, you find yourself having to answer the same old questions over and over – questions like what medicines you take and whether you have any allergies?
The reason is because different health and care providers use different computer systems to record your details. Because these systems don’t talk to each other, the organisations looking after you can’t see the information each other holds on you.
But that is set to be a thing of the past, with the introduction of One Health and Care, a confidential NHS shared care record for the Black Country and West Birmingham, and neighbouring areas.
