Bexley CCG News
Sharing your care record to get you faster, safer, more effective support and treatment

Health and care organisations across south-east London have worked together to improve your care by connecting two successful electronic care record systems.

Previously two separate systems offered a secure way of sharing information electronically between local staff involved in your care. This meant that not everyone used the same system and information could only be shared in pockets of south-east London. For example, those living in Lewisham but receiving treatment from Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust – your records would not be immediately available to the staff looking after you or making the referral.

Now, the two systems have been linked together – connecting up some 15,000 care professionals across six boroughs to benefit approximately two million people. Only relevant information about you is securely and instantly shared between the staff who need it.

You can still express your views around how your information is shared and with who, by speaking to the person caring for you or your GP.

Protecting against cyber attacks

The recent cyber-attack has had no impact on services in Bexley. Checks of IT systems have been completed and these are all in order and secure. The CCG’s priority is to ensure that services to patients are not impacted. 

The CCG can confirm the following: 

  • Patients have continued to be treated by all the usual local services
  • There is no evidence that patient data has been accessed or patient records affected
  • Patients should keep their hospital or GP appointment unless told not to go
  • Patients can continue to make appointments with their GP
  • Local residents should use the NHS wisely and use pharmacists for minor ailments and conditions
  • Systems may be running slower than usual
