Cornwall is promised our healthcare is about to get more personalised.
A new initiative will mean we only have to explain what is wrong with us once, no matter who we wind up seeing.
The pilot scheme will also mean we know exactly who is in charge of our care.
Health boss Colin Philips told Pirate FM it is long overdue: "The same patient can go through re-assessment, after re-assessment, after re-assessment. Patients don't like that. They hate saying things twice, three times or four times, it's highly inefficient to do that. Why not have a single source of information?
"We come from a historic background where these are all different organisations doing their own thing with a patient. I think this is actually a real sea change in the approach to actually put the patient centre stage and let organisations work out the detail behind all of that."
