Who is involved?

Patients Know Best

Patients Know Best provides health information exchange to thousands of patients worldwide. The patient owns the copy of their medical information in Patients Know Best and chooses who to share this record with. 

Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading independent charity dedicated to cancer research. We believe that your patient experience can be improved by having access to your health information and supporting information and resources. Our aim is for every cancer patient to be able to access their records if they choose to.

Your NHS Trust

Your NHS trust holds your health record that can be provided to you through Your Patient Portal. 

Other partners

Cancer Research UK has also been working with the brain tumour charity brainstrust and the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS) to improve patient access to their records, and Your Patient Portal is a continuation of the work done piloting the Patient Portal.
