Patient online access to GP record may come to exclude historical notes

17 July 2018 – Pulse Today

NHS England is looking at offering patients online access to GP records from a certain date forward to avoid ‘an information breach’ in releasing historical notes.

The proposal forms part of talks to realise a Government commitment to make full GP records available online to every patient by 2018, which has yet to appear.

Patients would still be able to request historical records, as per the current system.
