Adult social care

We are working with all local authorities in the North East and North Cumbria so that staff working in adult social care can access and share information through their existing case management system.

The 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

Sunderland and Newcastle City Councils will be amongst the first to view and share information about they people they care for on the Great North Care Record. Durham County Council is also planning to access and share data in 2021.

We have made a view of the Great North Care Record available to staff working in Newcastle, Gateshead and Durham local authorities. This is specifically for COVID-19 related purposes

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.
