Important Notice

 Dear patients the practice will be scanning all OLD paper records and converting these to an individual digital record for each patient. This will make all of a patient's records more accessible when consulting as it will be in one place. We will be using an approved company to do this work contracted by City & Hackney NHS CCG. Importantly once scanned the original paper notes will be destroyed as there will now be a digital version in each patient's records.
 
We are planning to start this work in August 2020. If you do not want your OLD paper records to be converted to a digital version please let the practice staff know by 31st July 2020. This can be by email, phone or letter.
