New digital patient record system for Chelsea and Westminster Hospital from November

21 May 2019

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital will begin using our new Cerner electronic patient record system from 5 November this year.

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital will begin using our new Cerner electronic patient record system from 5 November this year. This follows the launch at West Middlesex Hospital in May 2018 and will bring the whole Trust onto the same system for the first time.

Patients can be confident that staff caring for them have access to information about their health and care from wherever they are in our hospitals. This includes information like test results, diagnoses and treatments. It is better for patients and better for our clinical staff.

And we are taking this one step further by sharing the system with Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. If you are also a patient at, for example, Charing Cross Hospital, our staff will be able to see records of your care there. It all means a more complete picture of your health which will help us give you the best possible care.

Our Chief Operating Officer, Rob Hodgkiss, said: "I’m delighted that we have now confirmed the date for the next step in our digital transformation. This is not just about introducing a computer system. We are doing this to take advantage of the best digital technology to help us deliver the best patient care."
