Online Access to GP records
See my previous posts for the long story
Access to coded records Test Results, Immunisations, medications Appointments has been part of the GP contract since May 2016. If you do not get this your GP is in breach of the contract if the medical software has the functionality.
Documents such as letters, free text which is consultation detail and administrative items are not part of the contract at present and it is up to individual GP’s discretion. Many people see everything others like me the minimum. This has produced huge inequity across NHS England which is unfair and disadvantages self care. Some of this will change with the new GP contract.
