What is the Individual Health Record?
The IHR is a copy of basic information from your GP record made available to medical staff at your local Out Of Hours Service. Eventually it may be made available to other emergency and urgent healthcare settings.
At the end of December 2009, the first pilot for the national Individual Health Record solution went live in Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion.
It links Argyle Medical Group, which is the biggest GP practice in Wales with over 25,000 registered patients, with the Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion out of hours service.
The IHR gives emergency and out of hours doctors access to information from the medical record held by the patient’s GP.
