Getting ready for patients to have access to their future data

From December, patients with online accounts will be able to view all new entries in their GP health record.

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.

Patients of practices using SystmOne are due to start being able to access records from December, while patients of practices using EMIS will be from January 2022.

It aims to provide a single place to access all the COVID-19 information and guidance needed to ensure safe, effective care for patients whilst ensuring the safety and wellbeing of staff and the resilience of practices.
