Headline

Patients to be able to edit GP records 'far sooner' than expected

Comment

Dr Alessi, you have access already and have done for many years, just not through the high risk internet. It's worrying if you are vice-chair of NAPC and are either unaware of this or have not realised how you might be misconstrued with statements such as reported above. Amendments can be added to the written record if patient disagrees but the actual record should not be changed or it becomes worthless. I don't understand what you think will be achieved by this to make it worth the risk. What about hospital records? (You have been quoted as saying "complete medical record")
