My last post on this subject described how the new GP contract had brought in new regulation giving patients access to their FULL Prospective online GP record from April 2020. This meant you could read all the text written by your HP in a consultation, all results etc going forward (provided your GP Practice did not use VISION software which does not have the functionality)
I am delighted to say there has been a further update on the 6 February. The new regulation states that GP WILL GIVE PATIENTS ACCESS TO THEIR FULL ONLINE GP RECORDS INCLUDING HISTORICAL RECORDS ON REQUEST. This information is in the Annexe and has not been advertised. Here is the link to the full document and a screen shot of that information. Please use this information to gain access to your full online record after 1 April 2020. This is a hugely significant step recognising that our access to our medical information is vital to self management.
NB. I am not sure of the relevance to Wales Scotland and NI which have different arrangements for record access
