Getting ready for patients to have access to their future data

    Nhs 10mm Rgb Blue Ip0ha7wtvbs

From Summer 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 which use Vision as the clinical system are under discussion.

This is an NHS England and NHS Improvement programme supported by NHS Digital. The change supports the 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 several sessions listed below that address the training needs related to specific roles. Please feel free to choose the sessions most relevant to your role.
