Extra funding for the NHS will help the "overwhelming demand" facing hospitals and wards, a health chief has said.
Tim Kelsey, national director for patients and information at NHS England, hoped easy access digital health records would make the "patient journey from hospital to home seamless".
A single patient record will help make the patient journey from hospital to home seamless, giving professionals from different health and care organisations access to information when they need it most, without patients having to repeat themselves every time they speak to a different doctor, nurse or care professional.
This extra funding will help us better meet the overwhelming demand from the Safer Hospitals, Safer Wards fund announced in May this year. It's great news for the NHS and great news for patients.
