Health apps and websites

In Cheshire East, you may have access to use:

MyCareView is an online space that you control, powered by software PatientsKnowBest.

It contains your unique health and care information, that can be shared with your GP, hospital or anyone else you invite to see your information. It allows you to:

• See new letters, leaflets or videos shared to support your healthcare

• Communicate with anyone you have invited to see your MyCareView record

• Record your symptoms

• See and act-on any care plans that you might be on

• See upcoming appointments

• Diagnoses

• Allergies and medications

• Monitor your fitness and health by linking your account with your FitBit and other devices.

• Link your account with the NHS App (later in 2020)

Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and East Cheshire Trust will be inviting patients in a phased approach over the next twelve months.

As more care settings join MyCareView, more and more patients throughout Cheshire East will receive an invitation to join.  Longer term, the intention is to allow access to MyCareView through self-registration in the NHS App (a national solution), and for all care settings in Cheshire East to sign up and invite their patients.
