The switch to a new electronic medical record system installed at U.K.-based Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust may have caused issues with patients' medical records, according to a report from the Hull Daily Mail.

Records were moved from an old system to the new one, but staff struggled to update the records with any new appointments or information, according to the article.

IT staff are working with doctors and nurses to guide them on the new system, and no information has been lost from patients' "core clinical" records, according to IT head Martyn Smith, the Daily Mail adds. Article
