NHS Kernow
Guru in Cornwall


NHS Kernow has used Microtest’s Guru within urgent and acute care settings across Cornwall to give clinicians immediate two-way access to patient records held in Microtest’s Evolution GP system and read-only access to records in other primary care systems. This has helped hospital staff in emergency departments and medical assessment units to treat patients faster and more effectively.
