Digital Clinical System

We’re creating a new electronic patient record that will bring huge benefits for staff and the communities we serve.

The innovative Digital Clinical System (DCS for short) is a major joint project between East Cheshire NHS Trust and Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. It will:

  • provide a state-of-the-art, digital source of information;
  • ensure information is available to the right people, in the right place, at the right time;
  • improve staff and patients’ experiences;
  • support safety;
  • help to share information with health and care partner organisations.

Both trusts will now develop, build and test the system ahead of a planned launch in 2024. More information about the programme will be available as the plans progress.

A press release about the plans is available below.
