25 November 2021

Are you aged 50+ and from Greater Manchester? Would you like to find out more and share your views about the Greater Manchester Care Record? All participants will receive a £25 voucher in recognition of your time and contributions.


We would like to invite you to attend a focus group in partnership with Health Innovation Manchester on Thursday 25th November, 10:30 -12, on Zoom. If you would like to book a place or would like to find out more please email gmopn@macc.org.uk or telephone Beth Shipley on 07912259255 ASAP.


The Greater Manchester (GM) Care Record gives workers in health or social care, easy access to patient information that is critical to support decision-making about patient care and treatment.


Everyone in Greater Manchester who receives care from the NHS or social services is automatically included in the record, unless they ask to be excluded.

Past research has shown that there are particular groups of people who have shown a higher than average level of concern or propensity to opt-out of other joined up care records in the past. Older people are one of the groups more likely to express concern and/or opt out. 


This focus group will be about sharing information about the GM Care Record and hearing about why you think older people might be concerned or more likely to opt out.  


We have a limited number of places for this focus group so please contact us ASAP if you would like to book a place.
