Accessing your information electronically.
In 2017 we introduced Electronic Patient Records (EPR) in our Trust.
If you have attended hospital since May 2017, you will be able to see your record online through a patient portal called Your EPR. It is a convenient and secure website to help manage your health.
Your EPR lets you view information about your health care:
- See GP copy letters (those written after 4th June 2018)
- Review your recorded allergies
- See future appointments
- See selected data from your hospital records including test results
- View patient education leaflets
