Call for NHS patient’s data to go online

 

NHS patients in Wiltshire will be asked if they want their medical records added to a national computer database.

Primary Care Trusts have been given the responsibility of loading patients’ records locally, after the previous Government’s maligned national IT programme for health records was abandoned.

However, following concerns from patients groups, the only information that will be loaded on the electronic record will be a patient’s name and address, their GP, current medications, allergies and adverse reactions.
