The Hampshire Health Record is pleased to announce that it is now receiving discharge letters and clinic letters from Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Trust. The letters received are for patients registered to any GP in west Hampshire.
This is the first time that information from a provider out of the geographic ‘footprint’ of Hampshire has been received for patient care.
Dr Mark Kelsey GP, Chief Clinical Information Officer for HHR said
“This is an important development for us. Caring for patients is an increasingly complex business and we can’t expect them to stay within convenient geographic boundaries. We want to develop a comprehensive record and that means understanding our patient flows and making sure that information about those patients is available to ensure good follow up care.”
HHR is actively talking to other hospital providers to ensure that key information is made available to help with patient care.
