Medical Records

Medical Records

Furness along with the rest of South Cumbria and Lancashire has been chosen to be a national pilot for the digitisation of Medical Records. Currently over 18 football pitches worth of space is being taken up across 230 practices to store records in this area.

By scanning these paper based records and making them digital; this will enable better utilisation of space to create more clinical space, staff areas, multi team space and video hubs. It will also save money by removing the need for some practices to build extensions.

The records will be stored in a secure cloud based system (only accessible by your GP) with the paper based records being securely destroyed following BS EN 15713:2009 Secure destruction of confidential material.Your GP will be able to access your records easily with this system. Your GP will still be able to access your records easily.

The scanning and destruction of the records will adhere to strict data protection guidelines adhered to by the NHS.

If you wish to opt out of this scheme please inform the Practice direct either by letter or via e-mail abbeyroad.surgery@nhs.net

 Thank you
