Share2Care Privacy Notice

Through the Share2Care programme, the Clinical & Service Transformation workstream, which includes the enablement of integrated care systems through e- Xchange, will both connect and support the integration of our local health and care organisations. The workstream will ensure that information is available to the right people, in the right place, at the right time to deliver and drive service delivery, integration and transformation.

Share2Care will augment, improve, and support the transformational journey. The programme will drive adoption of digital services and make accessibility to real-time shared information the ‘norm’. The programme will seek large-scale collaborative solutions to address system-wide challenges, including:

  • Making organisational care data “boundary-less”, supporting patient care regardless of setting
  • Providing patients with seamless access to their care record
  • Supporting complex care needs delivered across super-regional / tertiary centres

Transparency Notice

Trusts within the Share2Care geography share information about you with other local health and care organisations that look after you.  Until now local health and care services held information about you and your care, but that information wasn’t always available to other services.  Sharing key information such as your diagnoses, medication, and other treatments means that everyone caring for you will have up-to-date information which will help them to provide better care for you.

Health and care organisations within Cheshire, Merseyside, Lancashire and South Cumbria hope that you will want your information to be shared in this way however, you do have a legal right to object to your data being shared. Objections are considered on a case by case basis.  When considering your objection, organisations will consider whether you can still be provided with safe individual care.  Please contact the health and care organisation that provides your care to discuss this further.  

National data opt-out

The national data opt-out is a service that allows patients to opt out of their confidential patient information being used for research and planning. Further details can be found here.
