Great North Care Record

NHS organisations across the region are working to roll out the Information Sharing Gateway (ISG) and Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG) from April 2017.  This is the first stage towards the long-term goal of a Great North Care Record.

The MIG allows secondary care to view structured data from the primary care (GP) record to support clinical decision making.
