The system is being brought in this weekend at Shrewsbury & Telford Hospital NHS Trust.

A new Patient Administration System (PAS), the first phase of the Electronic Patient Record (EPR), by System C will be rolled out at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH), which runs Princess Royal Hospital in Telford and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, this weekend.

The PAS will replace the trust’s 20-year-old system and involves transferring more than one million patient records and training more than 5,000 members of staff.

The move is part of a multi-million pound improvement programme that will modernise how patients’ medical notes are stored and accessed.

Nigel Lee, Director of Strategy and Partnerships at the trust, said: “The transfer of patient information is a major undertaking that has required meticulous planning and testing. We have robust plans in place and our teams will be working hard to minimise disruption to patients.”
