Have your say on electronic patient records

The days of large files full of papers in Norfolk’s hospitals could be coming to an end.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston, and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn are in the process of moving to electronic records.

It will mean patients will not have to remember their medical history or repeat the same information to different members of staff, making their care journey more joined-up.

The Norfolk and Waveney Acute Hospital Collaborative, which works to ensure all three hospitals work closely together,  is looking for adult patients and members of the public to join them for a one hour zoom call to share their views on the benefits of this transformation programme, as well as raise any concerns or queries.

What is it?

An opportunity for you to share your views and ask questions about how the EPR programme will impact your care and experiences.

What’s in it for me?

You will learn about how your care will be more joined up. Your input will be used to help shape how the technology is used to improve patient experiences.

How do I sign up?

Technology is also being used for the creation of the Shared Care Record which ensure records are shared widely between the people who need to see them such as doctors, nurses, your GP practice, and social workers.
