What have we achieved?

Stage One Pilot:  Complete

Stage one of Share2Care was a pilot to connect six sites to the e-Xchange platform. Please see below a list of the organisations that were included within the pilot, this was the first stage in the process towards achieving an integrated care record:

Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust

The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust

The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust

Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Teaching Hospital NHS Trust

Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital

Wirral University Teaching Hospital Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

St Helens & Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

The ILINKS Informatics Transformation Programme was instrumental in the success of the pilot, with its strategic vision to deliver safe and efficient ‘seamless’ care, through the development of a joined up information exchange across health and social services. The programme had already addressed the Information Governance surrounding the Information Sharing Agreements (ISA), which defines the arrangements for processing data across the ILINKS informatics Transformation Programme and sits underneath the overarching ILINKS Information Sharing Framework for all its Partner Organisations.  Due to this being in place, it enabled the Share2Care Programme to expedite the pilot.


Current Status


Stage Two: In Progress

Following the success of stage one of the pilot we are now expanding the Share2Care Programme and to date it includes:

Liverpool Womens NHS Foundation Trust

Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust

Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

Cheshire Care Record

Wirral HIE

North West Ambulance Service

Alongside this we have enabled the viewing of GP Primary Care Record, including EPaCCs Electronic Palliative Care Coordination, and as the shared record has evolved we can now give GP’s access to view the record.


Connecting to Lancashire and South Cumbria

As a North West Coast Shared Record we have successfully connected both geographical shared records via a XCA Connection, which acts like a bridge or gateway between the regions to enable our ‘seamless’ health and care record to reach a population of approx. 4.2 million.
