Patients and Carers

Giving you the peace of mind that wherever you go, wherever you might need care, your healthcare professional will have the full picture from the very start.

 

"I'm effectively carrying my entire medical history with me wherever I go in the world - and that's very reassuring.”

Jason - Northwick Park, London

"Emergency health care professionals have access so they know what to do - or what not to do!"

              Fran - North West London

As the company founded for patients, Patients Know Best (PKB) works on your behalf to share medical information (like the outcome of your last GP appointment or your recent test results), so that everyone looking after you understands the type of care and support you need and want.

With access to your PKB health record, you can expect to be listened to, involved in decisions, get more detailed explanations about your care and be treated as a person with individual needs, not just another number amongst hundreds. 

Take control of your health. Register today.

Know more. Do more. Live better.

Add your data

Add important information about your past medical history or any old clinical documentation so it’s there in one place, when you need it.

Upload any old reports, care plans or test results and store them securely online, rather than carry around any old bits of paper or files.

Connect wearable devices

Connect data from wearable devices such as Fitbits or glucometers. 

Share this data with healthcare teams from the comfort of your own home in real-time. This helps you to track your condition and also alerts your healthcare team to any changes they should know about.

Track your health

Keep a journal, monitor your symptoms and add measurements.

Understand what’s normal for you. Then, if something isn’t quite right, you know when to contact your health and care team. 

Share your record

Instantly share all, or parts of your record with anyone who needs it.

Quickly give access to your GP, hospital consultant, at-home care provider, pharmacist, paramedic, carer or next of kin. Control what they see with granular privacy and consent settings and best of all, access it wherever you go (at home or abroad) for real peace of mind.
