How is my information protected?

More than 12,000 health and social care professionals in Berkshire could eventually have access to your records thanks to Share Your Care, so it is vital that the right controls are in place to protect your data.

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, has been met, and all organisations sharing or viewing your data have signed a detailed information sharing agreement.
