GPC chair says shared patient records are increasing workloads

Comment

Sharing records electronically, with appropriate consent improves care and reduces the risk of harm. It should be unbraced and encouraged. If there are resource implications, including workforce, they should be factored in. Now that Boris has found the magic money tree, resources should no longer restrict our ambition for seamless information. There is a good case for making this a priority.
