Getting ready for patients to have access to their future information

From November 2022, GP systems are being updated to give people with online accounts (NHS App and other approved patient apps) access to see new entries in their GP health record automatically

It means most patients aged 16 and over with online accounts (such as through the NHS App or other patient online apps) are automatically able to view new entries in their clinical record, including details of medications, test results and records of appointments they have had with any clinician entering information to the clinical system.

This applies to patients whose practices use the TPP and EMIS systems.

This is an NHS England programme supported by NHS Digital. The change supports the NHS Long-Term Plan commitments to provide patients with digital access to their health records.

In July, NHS England wrote to general practice staff to detail the need to prepare for this change together with a package of resources that includes learning from early adopter sites, online toolkit, and the general practice checklist.  Many practices have successfully prepared for this change so they can fully benefit from and safely provide this access for their patients.

We appreciate the pressures experienced by general practice and that some may not yet be fully prepared for the change. Recorded webinars are available on the Implementation Team FutureNHS workspace to help practices ensure access to online records is offered safely and effectively.
