Care homes to update GP records 'daily', says Hunt


Dear Mr Hunt, I don't know who is feeding you these wild suggestions but please, speak to some real doctors before coming out with guff like this. GP notes are packed with confidential medical data, compiled for the purpose of providing medical care. Care home staff do not need and should not have access to patients' detailed medical history and as a GP, I certainly do not need daily updates about all my care home patients.
