Offering patients access to their future health information - NHS Digital

Good news I think. A new relationship in decision making, time management and task sharing for the NHS and the British public! As Aristotle would say adding logos to the ethos and pathos of TIK TOK, Facebook Feeds Youtube etc.

"There is now a revised timeline for the automatic switch on of prospective access. On 01 November 2022, patients at practices using TPP and EMIS systems will automatically have access to their prospective records online.

Work is ongoing with Cegedim (previously Vision) to create the same functionality. This does not change the status of general practices as a data controller or alter existing obligations to promote and offer access to historic information
