Questionnaire for patients wishing access to their records


I think these other questions are the common concerns that patients have about access to their records. I think that they are probably shared with the clinician. I guess an open discussion about the premise and at the time of registration would avoid pitfalls later. It would be useful if there have been other pitfalls. I think it really does stand as a testament that this has been rolled out for 8 years without a major incident. not many innovations within the NHS can claim such success. This is going to be the new standard. Patients will expect it and I think it will be great for patient care. It will ultimately make us more productive. With regards to Point 10, I must admit that when I type it is not really with the point of view that a patient will read this. I will need to adapt how I record things in the notes. a small price to pay!! - anonymous salaried!!
