Signing up means that you have a copy of what professionals are recording about you.
This is important for you for your clinical safety, as you can share this information with future professionals who may not have access to these records e.g. if you go on holiday and get sick, or if you have a new illness and the clinical team need to understand your past health.
The other great benefit is that it will give you an understanding of your health. We have links on relevant pages that explain some of the medical language used in non-medical terms. This means you will have the opportunity to engage with your own care in a way that has never been possible before.
