The PRSB is dedicated to the development of standards in health and social care to improve the patient experience and help save lives.

The PRSB develops and helps implement standards for the structure and content of health and social care records. These cover, for example, hospital referral letters, handover communications, discharge summaries, and inpatient and outpatient letters.

Through the Standards Partnership Scheme, our aim is to build stronger, mutually beneficial relationships between suppliers and providers, to accelerate the adoption and meaningful use of standards.
