Digitalisation of Historical Paper (Lloyd George) Medical Records

Posted by: jessicahelyer - Posted on:

From July 2022, Woodhouse Medical Practice will be conducting a project to digitalise all of our historic paper based patient medical records, commonly known as Lloyd George medical records. Digitising these records will enable better utilisation of practice space, increase security as well as making the full patient record easily accessible at the point of care to clinical staff within the practice.

On completion of the digitisation process, paper based records will be securely destroyed. The scanning and destruction of the paper records will follow strict data protection guidelines adhered to by the NHS.

Any new records received by the Practice after the initial project is complete will be also digitalised on an ongoing basis.
If you wish to discuss the scheme, please inform the Practice direct either by letter or via e-mail
