National Record Locator

Summary

On November 27 2018 the first phase of the National Record Locator (NRL) went live. NRL will eventually allow health and care professionals and providers to securely locate and identify patient records elsewhere in the health system.

During phase one of the project we are working with local shared record providers, ambulance services and mental health trusts in the North West, North East, Yorkshire and London.  

Paramedics (and ambulance staff) are often the first point of contact for patients with mental health conditions or patients experiencing a mental health crisis.  Record locator will allow paramedic/ambulance staff treating patients to check if they have a current care plan in place with a mental health trust to support how and where the patient is treated.  

Following a review of phase one we expect that the second phase of NRL will start the integration between areas that are ‘local health and care record exemplars’ and other fast followers before it is rolled out wider health and care system.
