About encompass

A system designed and built by our people, for our people.

encompass is a Health and Social Care programme that enables every citizen in Northern Ireland who receives health and social care to have a single digital care record.

On Thursday 9th November 2023, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust (SEHSCT) became the first Trust in NI to Go-Live with a new single digital care record system, encompass.

Implementing encompass has taken a whole system approach with many partners and hundreds of individuals working long hours, all with the aim of making our health service safer and more efficient for patients and service users.

The remaining Trusts are set to follow on a phased basis throughout 2024-2025. The Belfast Trust is the next Trust scheduled to go live, followed by the Northern Trust, Western Trust and Southern Trust.
