Greater Manchester Care Record and “MyGM Care” app

Bringing together health and care information across Greater Manchester

The Greater Manchester Care Record (GM Care Record) is a vital digital resource for the city region’s 2.8m citizens, that is used to help improve health and care services and save lives.

It brings together your information from NHS and care services across all 10 Greater Manchester boroughs into one joined up record, so that your information can be accessed by frontline health and care workers, wherever you receive your care.

Health and care information that saves lives

Giving health and care workers access to your patient information within the GM Care Record ensures you will receive the care and treatment you need, at the right time, in the right way.

The GM Care Record joins together our regions’ different NHS and care organisations to help hospitals and other care services access your individual health and care records quickly and securely.

Easy access to your information is essential to providing the most informed front-line care and treatment for you.

Download your own personal GM Care Record and start recording what matters to you

Now Greater Manchester is slowly opening up parts of this record so that you can also see the information on your smartphone device (apple or android) in the comfort of your own home. It also allows you to record information about yourself too that could be vital in an emergency or for your ongoing care needs that all can see if the need arises. Be one of the first patients who can see this information. See further below to find out more.

You can download it for FREE from the play store here (for android devices) and from the app store for apple devices.

Please note: you can still use your NHS app, Patient Access or Evergreen Life PHR app to access your GP medical records. This enhances what you can already see and provides new opportunities for you to help the NHS and social care further.

For the very best experience, we recommend you use both your GP app (NHS App, Evergreen life or Patient access) as well as the MyGM Care app

The GM Care Record is part of something much bigger

The information in the GM Care Record helps us to understand some of the most pressing health issues affecting our city-region. 

That’s because your de-identified data, i.e. health and care information whereby your name, NHS number and address has been removed, is being used for highly selective and world-leading research with our clinical, academic and industry partners in Greater Manchester, including our region’s universities and within the NHS.

You can choose to opt out of this if you wish to do so. Learn more about research and planning, see case studies and the results we have gathered to date here.

Keeping your personal data safe is central to the GM Care Record

Each health and care organisation in Greater Manchester collects information about you and keeps records about the care and services they have provided. The GM Care record pulls together the information from different health and social care records and displays it in one combined record to fronline workers.
