Access to Health Records

BMA Guidance: Access to Health Records - How to handle requests, including subject access requests, requests from third parties such as insurers and the police and requests for records of deceased patients.

NHS Digital: Accelerating patient access to their record - From April 2022, patients with online accounts such as through the NHS App will be able to read new entries in their health record. This applies to patients whose practices use the TPP and EMIS systems. Arrangements with practices which use Vision as the clinical system are under discussion. This is an NHS England programme supported by NHSX and NHS Digital.
