Health and Justice Information Services
The supplier of the new health and justice IT system has been announced by NHS England. The new service will improve patient care by giving access to services such as the NHS e-Referral Service, which makes referrals electronically, and GP2GP which transfers patient records electronically. Organisations will have access to national Spine services and allowing patients in the justice system to select the Health & Justice healthcare team as their registered GP (often referred to as GMS registration).The new system will also enable justice healthcare professionals to make greater use of patients' Summary Care Records and their NHS Numbers.
