Another Presentation

I have to give another presentation about patients having access to their medical records this week. This time it is to some of the members of the local PCT including local council members and possibly local MPs.

The GP surgery at which I am registered has allowed its patients to have full access to their medical records for about 30 years and was the first in the country to allow patients access to their records online. While there are now 50 or more practices that allow this, it is something that is possible in at least 60% of the GP practices in the country and yet it is not yet available to patients even though it is available at no cost.

This week's presentation will be made using my PowerPoint slides because I have only a limited time in which to make my presentation, but I am sure that there will be lots of questions after the presentation; there always is.
