Enabling patient access to the GP electronic health record The Haughton Thornley Medical Centres Way
On Wednesday 17th June 2009, Coastal Medical Group in Morecambe invited Dr Hannan to come and talk about how Haughton Thornley Medical Centres has enabled patients to access their medical records so that they can learn from the experience. GPs, nurses, patients, the IT manager and practice manager as well as PCT IT staff came together to hear more and ask further questions about the service we are offering.
The practice has over 30,000 patients based on 3 sites with over 20 GPs. On 1st May 2009, they switched on the facility enabling their patients to also have full access to the GP electronic health record. Already 15 patients have signed up for access to their full GP electronic health record.
