Identify individual within the authority, answerable to senior management, to have day-to-day operational responsibility for records management within the authority
The individual within NHS Borders who is answerable to senior management and who has day to day operational responsibility for records management within the Board is:
Senior Health Information Manager
Medical Records Department
Borders General Hospital
Telephone: 01896 826502
The Board recognises that the PR(S)A encompasses all records within the organisation and is therefore far wider a remit than just health records management. As such the Board will explore the option of creating a Corporate Records Manager post to assume day to day operational responsibility for all organisation records. This Records Management Plan will be modified and updated appropriately and the Keeper of Records notified accordingly.
