Kingston Hospital is extending the system for storing patient health records electronically

12 August 2021

This change will mean that all your existing paper records will be scanned into an electronic record viewing system.

Once your paper records have been scanned, your whole hospital record can be viewed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by any health professional at Kingston Hospital involved in your care and treatment, enabling us to provide better care.

You may notice health professionals looking at the screen more during your appointment as they review information about your care and treatment.

The changes are being introduced gradually, starting in Autumn 2021.
