Abstract

Onifade A, Sque M (2016) Views on and perceptions of a paperless NHS. Nursing Times; 112: 32/33/34, 12–14. Little research has been undertaken to ascertain nurses' views of a paperless NHS so health professionals in a hospital in the West Midlands were asked about the initiative through face-to-face interviews and a focus group. This article outlines their responses. It shows that some were unaware of the scheme, while others were generally positive about electronic healthcare records (EHRs) but concerned about their use in practice.
