I have received over 80 comments over the last few days on my posts on this subject. I cannot believe the difficulty and total misinformation that you are all finding accessing your GP Health record. I have tried to explain as much as I can.
Every practice in England has the ability to give you access after application. I have raised this issue nationally and will continue to do so until we have change.
I have just come across this link which explains everything we have discussed. Patient online is an NHS group that will take your complaints and deal with your GP practice for you.
You will see from the link they have huge resources for GP practices including poster packs. They have regional implementation leads to help them set up the systems to allow patients to access records. This has been in place for years in preparation for the March 2016 deadline. I do not know why GP practices have not taken it board but I could make a few guesses!
Have a good read and if you are having a problem with your practice show them this or ring one of the numbers.
