  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

NHS patients will be given online access to their health records in the next three years under plans to be announced by the Government today.

Doctors’ surgeries will have to set up services to allow anyone to see their health files, book appointments and order repeat prescriptions on the internet.

People will also be given detailed information on the survival rates and success of treatments in their areas, so they can choose to go to more “successful” hospitals or doctors if they wish.


"book appointments and order repeat prescriptions on the internet."

They have that already at our surgery.

A little while back I sent a handwritten letter to my GP and wrote PERSONAL on the envelope. A couple of weeks later I was having some blood taken by a nurse when I noticed that my letter to the doctor was up on the computer screen! Any of the staff could read it ....... I was furious!!!! I wrote to the doctor again, telling him how shocked I had been and would he please remove it from the computer and destroy the letter. His reply was, it's now their policy to put absolutely everything relating to the patient in one place on the computer ...... *splutters* :angry:  :td:

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

you can opt out of "summary care records" by request. go to your GP and request not to be part of "summary care records" before it is too late. parents can opt their kids out too.
if you don't then by default your health records will be uploaded to a central database and available to anyone who the powers that be deem need access to it (which will eventually be, if not already, insurance companies, employers, social services, government workers, etc). so much for patient-doctor confidentiality.
