We are committed to the digitisation of paper records to enable effective patient care and enhanced patient safety. A digital transformation plan, which will include digitisation of patient care records, is currently underway for Mount Vernon’s main acute services and is expected to conclude in May 2020. A strategic review of the separate Mount Vernon Cancer Centre is also underway and expected to be completed during 2020.
