Adult social care

We are exploring ways in which organisations providing adult social care can link to the Great North Care Record. We are talking to social care leaders about how we implement the Great North Care Record across our local authorities.

A Great North Care Record social care group meets on a regular basis with representative from all 13 local councils in the region:

  • Cumbria County Council
  • Darlington Borough Council
  • Durham County Council
  • Gateshead Metropolitan Borough Council
  • Hartlepool Borough Council
  • Newcastle upon Tyne City Council
  • North Tyneside Local Authority
  • Northumberland County Council
  • Redcar and Cleveland Council
  • South Tyneside Metropolitan Borough Council
  • Stockton on Tees Borough Council
  • Sunderland City Council

We are working closely with Sunderland City Council, who will be the first council to connect to the Great North Care Record. Once Sunderland are connected (we anticipate in early 2020), we will look to connect other local authorities.

A copy of a benefits report is available, it explores some of the financial and client benefits of adult social care being able to access the Great North Care Record.
