The Dorset Care Record (DCR)
Your information may also be shared via the DCR, an electronic record linking health and social care information from Dorset General Practices (doctors’ surgeries), Borough of Poole Council, Bournemouth Borough Council, Dorset County Council, Dorset County Hospital, Dorset Healthcare University NHS Foundation Trust, NHS Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group, Poole Hospital, and Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals to improve care in Dorset.
Having the ability under the Dorset Care Record to access the same information and share it more readily will allow medical and social care professionals to decide more quickly what treatment you may need and the best way to help and care for you. This will help provide you with better healthcare. At the same time we do recognise the importance of protecting personal confidential information in all that we do and take care to meet our legal requirements. How we will use and look after your information is explained in the Dorset Care Record privacy notice.
