In line with the NHS Long Term Plan and ‘Data Saves Lives’ Data Strategy, NHS England is working to make it easier for patients to digitally access their future health information in their general practice records.
This was originally due to come into effect on 1 April 2022, but was delayed shortly before this deadline and is now confirmed to come into effect from 1st November 2022.
Jessop Medical Practice have opted to add the following code to all patient records:
‘Enhanced review indicated before granting access to own health record’
Records with this code will be excluded from the changes, and patients will then need to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to identify if access can be provided without a risk of serious harm.
This decision was made because it is the responsibility of each general practice, as the sole data controllers, to undertake a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) to identify and minimise data protection risks.
