Who we are
The PRSB was set up in April 2013 by the Academy of Royal Medical Colleges. We are a unique collaboration of groups representing those who receive and provide health and social care across the UK, as well as those providing the IT systems that support care.
Our aim is to develop high quality, consistent care records and promote their use. Our membership includes all the major medical colleges and key organisations representing patients and allied professions, across the whole of the UK.
