Great North Care Record

cumbria icon North East and North Cumbria

The Great North Care Record (GNCR) is a CHC NENC led initiative introduced in 2016 across the North East and North Cumbria region.  The GNCR will enable NHS healthcare professionals treating a patient to view an electronic summary of their GP held medical records, with the patient’s explicit permission.  This is already done using paper or fax.  It is envisaged that patients and the public will understand the extensive benefits of sharing and choose to opt-in, although an individual has the option to opt-out.
