Patient Care Records

Cliinical Update Icon

Completing Patient Care Records: Every patient contact­ – every time.

Both you as a clinician and EEAST as a Trust, have a duty to ensure that every instance of the care, advice and treatment we provide to our patients is documented.

This is to ensure that all patient interactions and treatments are evidenced so that you and the Trust are protected in the event of any dispute.

This information also forms part of the onward care package that can assist other healthcare providers.

It is therefore a vital part of our medical-legal obligations that we ensure every patient contact gets an appropriately filled-in ePCR demonstrating the care we provided.

If you have any questions regarding this, please refer to your local management team for clarification.
