My Health and Care Record

The Trust uses an online system called ‘My Health and Care Record’* to provide access to personal information relating to the care we provide you.

‘My Health and Care Record’ is a secure online system where you can view your hospital appointment letters and clinical letters on any internet enabled device eg. a desktop computer or tablet or mobile phone.

Once you have signed up to the system, you will receive all future correspondence this way, keeping all your personal information securely, in one place. You can also choose to provide access to your personal information on ‘My Health Record’ to family, carers and health professionals. Don’t worry, this is your choice and you can also remove permissions at any time.

If you have an upcoming outpatient appointment you will be invited to access your appointment letter online through ‘My Health and Care Record’.

*Please note the system was previously known as ‘My Health Record’.

After Trauma

The After Trauma team will be using My Health Record to follow up with some patients following recent treatment at either Conquest Hospital or Eastbourne District General Hospital. My Health and Care Record will be used to provide patients with information to support their recovery and they are also being asked to complete  a questionnaire to see how they are getting on and identify if any additional support is required. Patients will be contacted through a letter, inviting them to register. If patients choose not to register then the follow up questionnaire will be sent through the post. If you have any questions about your follow up with the After Trauma Team then please email: esht.AfterTraumaTeam@nhs.net and put in the subject, ‘Trauma and My Health Record’.
