Our diverse Third Sector forms an integral part of the health and care system in Leeds. As integrated care partnerships begin to take shape, the health and care system is moving towards cross sector data sharing, communication between service delivery partners, and multidisciplinary engagement with patients in line with person centred working. As part of this system change, the City Digital Partnerships Team at Leeds City Council is working with Third Sector organisations delivering direct care, to develop robust information governance to help them access Leeds Care Record.

What is Leeds Care Record?
Leeds Care Record is a secure joined-up digital care record which enables clinical and care staff to view real-time health and care information across care providers and between different systems.

What is the progress so far?
Initially Forum Central identified 12 Third Sector organisations who deliver direct care and worked with Dani Mistry, Principal Information Governance Officer at the City Digital Partnerships Team, to prepare and support organisations to apply for access to Leeds Care Record.

Dani carried out an information governance audit on each organisation and assisted them through the NHS Digital Data Security and Protection Toolkit to provide evidence for data protection compliance. Organisations who successfully progressed through the audit and met all of the Leeds Care Record data requirements were supported to complete the application. Two organisations have been successful in their application to access Leeds Care Record.

How can I learn more?
