An integrated digital record is made up of health and social care data from different sources. For CIDR, this currently includes data from our partners which are:
- All 34 Camden GP practices (Primary Care)
- Camden and Islington Mental Health Trust (Mental Health)
- Central & North West London NHS Foundation Trust (Community Health)
- Royal Free Hospital NHS Trust (Acute Secondary Care)
- University College London Hospital Trust (Acute Secondary Care)
- London Borough of Camden (Social Care)
- Royal Marsden Coordinate My Care (Palliative Care)
To improve your care, practices share patient information securely and confidentially with other Camden health and care organisations through the electronic Care Integrated Data Record service.
We encourage you to give your permission for your information to be shared so that your GP and other health and care professionals have the fullest picture of your needs and treatment and can take the best decisions about your care.
Opting in to CIDR means you should not need to repeat your information to professionals in different services or repeat tests and investigations which have already been carried out.
Your relationship with your GP will not change and you will receive the same range of services from the practice whether you “opt in” to CIDR or choose not to allow your records to be shared.
Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust (C&I) provides high quality, safe and innovative care to our patients in the community, in their homes or in hospital.
We provide services for adults of working age, adults with learning difficulties, and older people in the London area. We currently deliver the majority of our care to residents in the London Boroughs of Camden and Islington. However, we also provide substance misuse services in Westminster, and a substance misuse and psychological therapies service to people living in Kingston.
Our Trust is also a member of University College London Partners (UCLP), one of the world’s leading academic health science partnerships.
In addition we have specialist programmes which provide help and treatment for:
- Veterans living in London
- Young people caught in the cycle of gang culture
- Older people suffering from dementia and other age related mental health conditions
We are proud that our organisation is recognised internationally for the quality of its research and innovation. Over 40% of our consultants hold joint academic posts and are engaged in research across a wide range of mental health arenas. This research, often conducted with the help of our patients, ensures we are leaders in evidence based treatment and services, meaning we can provide some of the world's most up to date therapies to aid service user recovery.
We are a lead provider for educational placements in north London, and work in partnership with local universities to deliver both education and research projects as well as creating together the workforce of the future. This provides a great environment for our staff to innovate and deliver projects which transform patient care.
Our services are split into five divisions. This makes it easy for patients and GPs to access the right sort of care. Our five divisions are:
- Recovery and Rehabilitation
- Services for Ageing and Mental Health
- Substance Misuse Services
- Community Mental Health
In this section of the website you can find out more about what we do and how we are run.
Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest trusts in the UK, caring for people with a wide range of physical and mental health needs.
We provide a wide range of services to treat people with a variety of health needs. In broad terms, these include common physical health problems, long-term conditions, mental health, learning disabilities, eating disorders, addictions and sexual health. We are here to provide support for people through every stage of life.
The majority of our services are provided in the community, which means treating people in their homes or from clinics close to home. Where community care is not possible we offer a number of facilities to treat people in hospital or residential environments. We also provide healthcare in prisons in London and the surrounding areas.
We are committed to providing services that meet the needs of the people who use them, and we actively encourage involvement from local people who can help make a difference.
Everyone has the right to live a life that is free from abuse, harm and neglect.
However, an adult (someone over 18) with care and support needs may be more at risk of, or already experiencing, abuse or neglect because you:
- are unable to take care of yourself or protect yourself from harm
- depend on others for your care
- lack the mental capacity to take a particular decision
There are a range of care and support needs that might mean you are at risk of abuse, including age-related frailty, a visual or hearing impairment, physical disability or ill-health, learning disability, mental health problems, substance misuse or because you are providing care for someone else. It doesn’t matter whether or not an organisation is providing services to meet your care and support needs – we will still help you to stay safe from abuse.
Safeguarding adults in Camden is any area of work that protects your right to live in safety, free from abuse or neglect. It involves people and organisations working together to stop suspected abuse and help an adult at risk, taking account of your wishes, culture and beliefs in any decisions that are made.
Safeguarding is also much wider than responding to individual concerns. It involves developing a culture of prevention in services and communities so that abuse doesn’t happen in the first place and also equipping you with the information you need to keep yourself safe.
The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust runs three hospitals in London:
- Barnet Hospital
- Chase Farm Hospital
- Royal Free Hospital
Across our three London hospitals, our vision is clear: to deliver world class expertise and local care. We combine globally recognised clinical expertise with local and friendly hospital care to represent the NHS at its best.
Our mission is to be world class in terms of healthcare treatment, clinical research and teaching excellence. We aim to deliver and develop leading local healthcare in all three of our hospitals, to improve lives and help people thrive.
Achieving our Mission
Our governing objectives set out how we will achieve our mission by making sure that we have:
- Excellent outcomes in our clinical services, research and teaching
- Excellent experience for our patients and staff
- Excellent financial performance
- Safe and compliant with our external duties
- Continual development of a strong and highly capable organisation
Our governing objectives are supported by the following trust annual objectives:
- Develop a single approach to quality and safety improvement.
- Validate the waiting list and make definitive progress in reducing the number of patients waiting over 18 weeks.
- Improve the flow of emergency patients through and out of our hospitals.
- Deliver an ambitious but achievable QIPP (savings with quality improvement) programme, while strengthening long term financial sustainability.
- Work together with commissioners and other partners to implement integrated care plans with new patient pathways and effective demand management.
- Adopt world class care values and behaviours throughout the trust.
We are working to empower patients to have choices about the care they receive. We look to continually link up the organisations that provide care for a patient. If you are a GP we can assist you to support the needs and wishes of your patients. A personalised urgent care plan can be prepared and recorded on CMC to ensure all care providers can access this information all day, every day.
As a shared clinical service Coordinate My Care allows healthcare professionals to record patient's wishes and ensures their personalised care plan is available to all those who care for them.
