Patient Update – Records

On 1st November 2022 patients will automatically be given access to their general practitioner records relating to any contacts they have with their surgery after this date. This includes access to any free text in the record. Although GPs absolutely support patient access to records, and for most patients the access will only be positive, there are a number of issues that have not been addressed prior to this launch date.

Please see our section on Access to Medical Records for Clifton Road Surgery’s response to this.
