North West London health and care professionals are working together to provide your care. Those involved can see relevant information about you, so you can receive joined up care.
This ensures that when you visit your GP practice, the hospital, or get support in your community or at home, your care professional such as your GP, hospital doctor, district nurse or social worker has the right information about you at the right time.
You can talk to your health and care professional about sharing your information but here are some of the benefits:
You only need to tell your history once.
You avoid unnecessary appointments and tests.
You can be more involved in decisions about your care.
