Meet one-day-old Bailey James Taylor who was the first baby born following the introduction of an electronic patient record at Ormskirk hospital maternity unit.

The launch of the Medway system at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust moves maternity record-keeping from paper to a totally computerised system.

Bailey, from Sefton village in Maghull, was the first arrival after the switching on of Medway on Monday morning.

The centralised, integrated system will have inpatient and outpatient maternity care in the one place. It will also provide richer data and analysis that will help staff  keep improving the quality of care mums and babies receive.
