“As a clinician working in the emergency department then we have seen the benefits of the ambulance service transfer of care documents becoming readily available in our Electronic Health Record. In the future we will realise the benefits of sharing wider information including alerts, diagnosis and discharge letters. This will improve both the quality and safety of care we deliver in our clinical services.”
