    Webinars to support the development of an Information Standard for local health and care records

    The PRSB is currently working with NHS England to develop an information standard for local health and care records. To help inform this (and ensure a wide range of voices are heard) a series of webinars to discuss different elements of the core record are being held.

    Webinars are for health and care professionals, carers, patients, as well as NHS Digital and NHS England representatives.

    The aim of the local health and care records programme is to help local organisations move from today’s position, where each health and care organisation holds separate records for the individuals they care for, to one where an individual’s records are connected up from across the health and care system.

    This will help health and care professionals to share information safely and securely as the people they care for move between different parts of the NHS and social care. It also enables individuals to be able to access their records irrespective of which part of the health and care system that has provided them with their care.

    You’re invited you to take part in one of the PRSB’s webinars, which help to determine what will be contained in this core record. The views of both carers and care home professionals are highly valued, and will help to make care better for patients. You can find details of the webinars below.
