'Go live' for online access to records in England now 1 November

  • Date: 28 July 2022

NHS England has confirmed that 1 November 2022 is now the date patients at practices in England using TPP and EMIS systems will be granted automatic access to their prospective (future) records online.

Work is ongoing with Cegedim (previously Vision) to create the same functionality.

NHS England says this does not change the status of general practices as a data controller or alter existing obligations to promote and offer access to historic information.

A ‘dear colleagues’ letter has been sent to GPs in England asking primary teams to prepare for the change. Resources to support practices and commissioners are available at https://digital.nhs.uk/records
