Your Care Connected

 What is it? 

 Your Care Connected (YCC) is a ‘local scheme’ that is running in Birmingham, Sandwell and        

 Solihull. It is designed to allow doctors, nurses and other registered healthcare professionals to view   

 information from your GP record with your permission.

How does this help me?

 Care given to you in an emergency situation is safer.

 More secure and quicker than sending a fax or letter through the post.

 Provides information such as medication and the results of any recent medical tests (such as blood tests or x-rays). This can mean the tests would not have to be repeated by the hospital.
