A TALK will be given on Thursday for members of the public who want to know more about how their hospital stores patient records.

The University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Trust’s chief information officer, Steve Fairclough, will speak at the event in Barrow-in-Furness which will begin at 7.30pm in the main theatre of Forum 28.

The presentation will cover the patient information system, Lorenzo, and how it seeks to ensure that patients receive a better service than they did previously.

The trust was the first in England to adopt the Lorenzo system.

Denis Lidstone, a non-executive director of the Trust, said: “We are extremely pleased that the health trust is supporting this event, and together with its Medical Director, Mr George Nasmyth, will outline how technology is being constantly developed to improve outcomes from for its patients.”

The event is to be hosted by the Barrow and District Association of Engineers (BDAE).

Entry to the talk is free and all are welcome.
