A British Government report in the UK has recommended that patients should be given full access to their personal health records: “The review goes far beyond the government’s target that by 2015 GP practices in England must offer online access to records to patients – so far just 61 out of 6,200 surgeries have done so.” This will undoubtedly raise the spectre of security but if these issues could be addressed, it is obvious that this could have a positive impact on patient safety.
