Written for patients, this helpful booklet by the Department of Health and BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, provides advice and guidance for people about how they can access their records online safely and decide when and how to share them.
This 2-page document is designed to provide patients with information about online records access, answering common questions such as: why you might want to look at your records, whether you can look at your children's or other family members' records, and whether you can share access to your records with someone else.
Designed to provide information for patients, this booklet sets out how patients can take advantage of online records to help them better manage their own health and make tasks such as ordering repeat prescriptions easier. It also includes case studies and examples of different services in London that are already providing online access to improve the experience for their patients.
