NEW CLINICAL SYSTEM
At Milton Abbas Surgery, all patient records are held on our Emis computer system. This allows continuity of note keeping within the surgery and prevents you having to repeat your story when you see another member of the team. Many people assume that if they attend hospital or access out of hours care, staff there will also be able to see the patient record, but this is currently not the case.
In order for us to work more closely with the hospitals, ambulance staff and other healthcare providers, Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group are encouraging all GP practices to move to a single clinical system called SystmOne.
On the 18th September we changed our clinical computerised note keeping system to SystmOne. This was a huge undertaking and has involved a lot of planning, training and time to implement the new system. We thank you all for your patience and support during this time, it really is appreciated.
September has been a testing time for the surgery team so please be mindful that we are taking these steps to ensure that we are able to provide the best possible care for our patients now and in the future.
