An electronic health record for everybody in Surrey.
As a Royal Surrey Governor representative I attend the so-called stakeholder group for the Surrey Heartlands Transformation Programme. The latter is a collaboration between all the key players in the area including the Royal Surrey. It will be making a substantial impact on many aspects of health care. One project worth mentioning at this time is the intention to create an electronic health record for all residents of Surrey. It will start by drawing data from GP systems and then expand out to other care providers. Plans are in hand to send information to all households and will include the option to opt out.
