CHIE has benefits for nearly all clinicians within the local NHS and is used by a variety of people from hospital doctors and pharmacists, to community nurses; podiatrists, occupational therapists and physiotherapists, as well as your GP.

Having access to this record allows clinicians to have a much wider view of information than they might otherwise have to hand, which in turn is beneficial to providing your regular health care. In situations where a clinician may not have any history of your previous treatments, for example in Accident & Emergency, access to information about allergies, diagnosis and medication can provide vital details that will help them give you the best care and advice possible.
