Panic not, we can get Jeremy to copy those GP records


The most annoying thing for me about medical records is that anything can designated a medical problem, there for ever, and because of the restarting feature, patients can have multiple entries for the same problem, corresponding with each time they get seen about the problem -hence we get patients with an active problem list including 'failed encounter', 'patient informed of test result' 'not well' interspersed with 27 'Type 2 Diabetes mellitus' and eight 'total hip replacement' suggesting that the patient is a spider.
