How long do we keep your record?
The KM Care Record is only primarily used to share, rather than store, data contained within a local record, although some data may be created and stored within KM Care Record forms regarding health assessments and planning of care services. Your records are kept for as long as necessary by local partners in accordance with your care. The retention schedules are aligned to the best practice outlined by NHS Digital. This information can be found in a document called “NHS Records Management Code of Practice for Health and Social Care 2020” and can be found on the following link - NHS Records Management Code of Practice for Health and Social Care 2020
