Oh! ye'll take the high road...

El Reg reports that:
Work has begun on a social care equivalent of the care records guarantee for medical records, paving the way for merging health and social care records. The plans were disclosed as part of a debate at the annual Care Records Development Board meeting in London, yesterday.
The plan to merge records has actually been under discussion for several years. We're particularly fond of the poetic position statement contained in a 2003 document from the Department of Health:
"The relationship between the ESCR and NHS CRS might be described as a journey both parties are setting out on, both broadly know where they are going, but expect incidents en route, do expect to meet eventually, but are not sure either who will get there first or when they will meet up."
Awww, sweet.
