My Choices Record – Information for patients and carers
This leaflet is to explain My Choices Record and how it can be used to support your preferences about your care.
All GP practices have records of your medical care and treatment. These are confidential electronic patient records. They are referred to and updated as your care, medication and treatment alters.
You may have views about your care, what you would like to happen, where you want to receive care and your experiences of care. There may be aspects of treatment or care that you wish to decline.
My Choices Record is a record of your views and preferences regarding your care. Throughout your care, doctors or nurses you meet will give you the opportunity to talk about your illness, treatment and care preferences. These specific details can be recorded on My Choices Record.
