Dear NHS Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group,

Could you clarify that when you state no physical files exist, that is at GP surgery level and not within the CCG itself? I.e. each GP within the CCG's responsibility will hold some physical Lloyd George files in physical form, and then a clinical viewing/hosting system for the digital images of a patient record.

Yours faithfully,

Daniel Stonard

Dear Mr Stonard,

Thank you for your email.
I can confirm that NHS Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) does not hold any physical patient files.
Unfortunately, in regards to GP Practices, NHS Wirral CCG does not hold this information.
Please can I suggest that you contact each GP Practice directly?
A list of each Wirral practice is publicly available on our website. Please see the link provided below for further information:
