Other NHS projects
Connected Care is the computer system that makes it possible to Share Your Care. It creates an ‘integrated digital record’ for people who are registered with a GP working in Berkshire.
You may also have heard about two national projects known as Summary Care Records and care.data. These are very different to Share Your Care.
Summary Care Records
The Summary Care Record (SCR) is a way for the NHS to allow some of your information to be shared nationally between clinicians to support urgent care. Unlike Share Your Care, a Summary Care Record does not provide a complete picture of your health and social care. NHS Choices has more information about Summary Care Records.
There has been a lot in the news about a NHS data sharing project called care.data. This is not the same as Share Your Care. The care.data project was cancelled by NHS England earlier this year. NHS Choices has more information about the care.data programme and why it was closed.
