Data for your care – The GM Care Record is putting your data at the heart of individual care, it holds health and care information that saves lives

The GM Care Record brings together your information from NHS and care services across all 10 Greater Manchester boroughs, so that your latest health information can be accessed by frontline health and care workers, wherever you are.

An incredible resource, the GM Care Record ensures a smooth transition of care between each health and care professional in different NHS and care services.

It means GPs, doctors, nurses and care practitioners can deliver the safest and most effective care for you, without you having to repeat your story.

Data for Research and Planning – As well as your clinical health and care the GM Care Record is part of something much bigger

The information in the GM Care Record helps us understand the answers to some of the most pressing health questions affecting our region, such as those related to COVID-19.

That’s because de-personalised data, i.e. health and care information whereby your name, NHS number and address has been removed, will be used for highly selective and world-leading research at Greater Manchester universities.

So far, the approved studies are limited to those that tackle specific topics related to how different groups within our regions’ 2.8 million citizens have been affected by COVID-19.
