What is the Wirral Care Record (WCR)?
The Wirral Care Record (WCR) is a new confidential digital care record that is being developed and will include patient health and social care information.
Why do we need a WCR?
Currently, every health and social care organisation holds a different set of patient records. Information in different records may be duplicated or even incomplete. The WCR brings data from different organisations together, so the same information can be viewed. It is a read-only record, data cannot be edited directly from the WCR. Allowing authorised health and social care professionals to have access to the WCR will improve decision making by care professionals. This will provide patients with safer, more consistent care whether they are in hospital, at a GP surgery or any other place where care is accessed.
Please note the Wirral Care Record site may still be under construction. If you require further information you are advised to contact the Practice.
