Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has visited GP software suppliers EMIS and TPP in a visit to West Yorkshire. Mr Hunt visited EMIS Health’s Fulford Grange offices in Rawdon, Leeds, and also went to TPP’s new head office in Horsforth, Leeds.

Mr Hunt, was accompanied by Beverley Bryant, NHS England’s director of digital technology, Will Cavendish, Director General of Innovation, Growth and Technology at The Department of Health, and Dr Arvind Madan, Director of Primary Care, NHS England.

The visits enabled the officials to find out more about the software products and services that are supporting NHS clinicians in delivering care to millions of people, said EMIS Health.

“His visit came as the NHS nears the landmark of full digital access to GP medical records for all, an achievement made possible at more than half of all GP surgeries in the country by EMIS Health technology.” He was provided with a demonstration of the way in which patients are able to view their medical records via EMIS Health’s Patient Access hub.

Health secretary Jeremy Hunt said he wanted to “help doctors and nurses provide faster and better care - and improving technology in the NHS is a key way to do that.

“Creating a more digital NHS has the potential to transform care for patients, save valuable time for staff and benefit the local economy. I welcome the work that’s being done here and hope it will continue to make a real difference to patients in Yorkshire and beyond.”

Frank Hester OBE, Founder and CEO, TPP, commented: “We were delighted to welcome the Secretary of State to our new office. It was a great chance for us to update the minister on our UK and international projects, and our ongoing work in primary care, addressing key aspects of the digital health agenda. We are extremely proud of the building; it shows how much we have achieved as a company over 19 years.”
