Bristol School Nurses EMIS launches today

Bristol School Nurses EMIS launches today

As part of our ongoing drive to offer the best possible care to all our service users we are rolling out EMIS to our school nursing teams in Bristol today.

All school nurses in Bristol should have received training and be aware of the additional support which is available during the next few days.
 
School nurses in South Gloucestershire transferred over to the cloud-based electronic system on October 4, and the move has been very successful.
 
The switch to EMIS is another step forward for our provision of Children’s Services across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
 
Stephanie Stallard, Digital Programme Manager, is leading the project. She said: “South Gloucestershire School Nurses have been using EMIS very successfully for the past month. The team is feeling really positive about EMIS, as it is very user-friendly, and staff have experienced many benefits from the new system already.
 
"It has saved them time in a number of situations; because they have access to a record that is shared by other children’s services, they have avoided making appointments when the person is already being seen by another service.”
