Sharing is Caring – Give Trusted Access to Your Health Record

November 13, 2017

Looking after your family can be a tall task – keeping up to date with each other’s social calendars, getting children to their after-school clubs, working away from home and managing childcare, visiting older relatives regularly – it seems we don’t have enough hours in the day to keep truly on top of our own family’s activities. What if we also throw your family’s health into that mix?

Have you ever been in these situations where you’ve needed access to a loved one’s health information?

  • ‍You’re a new parent who wants to keep track of their child’s health
  • Your teenage child has gone to university and needs to register with a local GP
  • You have a partner with a medical condition that you help provide care for
  • You have an elderly relative that you want to keep informed about their health and care
