Great North Care Record
The Great North Care Record is the development of access for health professionals to view specific elements of your electronic medical records (e.g. medications, allergies, test results, diagnosed conditions, referrals, clinic and discharge information, address and telephone number), to help improve the care you receive in the North East.
The aim of the Great North Care Record is to support you with safer, more joined up care and to give healthcare professionals access to more accurate and consistent information across all services, in turn releasing more time to offer continuity of care for patients.
The Great North Care Record will ensure that with each patients informed consent, your information is available at the point you receive care to other NHS healthcare providers including hospitals, mental health services, out-of-hours doctors, NHS 111 and the ambulance service.
Please see more information about the Great North Care Record under the 'Further Information' section on the right hand side of the website home page.

Please allow 48 hours notice for repeat prescription requests.
We politely remind patients that it is their own responsibility to ensure they order repeat medication in time before they run out.
