Getting ready for patients to have access to their future data

    Nhsx Blue On White 600px 1 002

From April 2022, patients with online accounts such as through the NHS App will be able to read new entries in their health record. This applies to patients whose practices use the TPP and EMIS systems. Arrangements with practices that use Vision as the clinical system are under discussion.

This is an NHS England programme supported by NHSX and NHS Digital.

The change supports NHS Long Term Plan commitments to provide patients with digital access to their health records. 

It means GPs and practice staff will need to consider the impact of each entry, including documents and test results, as they add them to a patient’s record. Patients will not see personal information – such as positive test results – until they have been checked and filed, giving GPs the chance to contact and speak to patients first. 

To find out what this means for you and what you need to do next, join us for an upcoming event. There are a number of sessions listed below that address the training needs related to specific roles. Please feel free to choose the sessions most relevant to your role.

These awareness sessions will continue weekly, please note that further sessions will be added over the coming weeks. 

Further information on the detailed “How to” training will be advertised here.
