NHS Digital Funding Extends Digital Transfer of Care Records to Hospitals for Care Homes

NHS Digital’s Social Care Digital Innovation Programme funding is enabling care homes in Sutton and Merton to transfer care records to hospital electronically. A grant has been awarded to Sutton Council and Person Centred Software to extend their project following collaboration in early 2019 on an NHS demonstrator project that pioneered digitising the transfer of records from two care homes to St Helier Hospital. This forms part of the Paperless 2020 project, led by James Palmer, NHS Digital’s Social Care Programme Head, which aims to link NHS, local authorities and social care to digitally streamline records and improve social care outcomes.
