Technological standard training for UK family doctors who must now write notes that can or cannot be shared with patients

19 July, 2022

Here are some wonderful pieces of film from NHS Digital that educate and train doctors to write records that can be shared - or not shared with patients. I hope we can share these at the UN World Data Forum in Hangzhou, China April 23 to April 27th 2023 if our presentation proposal is accepted United Nations World Data Forum


Resources to support staff with providing record access to patients - NHS Digital


This work supports the UK government's commitment to patient access to their medical and social care records - including proxy access for children, citizens with mental incapacity and other vulnerable groups - learning disabilities - low health literacy etc


Guidance on offering prospective record access

Prospective record access guidance has been developed by NHS England and BMA General Practitioners Committee in England to support GP practices in meeting the commitment to give new registrants with full online access to prospective data, subject to existing safeguards for vulnerable groups and third party and system functionality.
