Online patient record access

GP access to records programme – GPC England statement

Following extensive negotiations and discussions with NHS England, the national mass roll out to turn on prospective access to the medical record from 30th November 2022 is not now occurring for those who wish to delay the process.

We have been advised by the British Medical Association that we can add a code to all of our patient records as, soon, there will be a roll out of full open access to patient records soon and we need to be able to check all records before we open access, for safeguarding reasons. There are still quite a few problems with the roll out process at the moment so we are awaiting a reviewed ‘go live’ date.
