#nhssm : the RCGP’s Patient Online: The Road Map -
Recently the Royal College of GPs (RCGP) launched their Patient Online: The Road Map document which sets out how patients and GPs will be able to interact online over the next few years. I wondered how many patients actually knew that Patient Online existed.
Currently only 1% actually have access to any of the facilities, why? The answer is simple; the functionality has not been enabled by the practice. In fact only 37% of GP practices have actually enabled the functionality. As a patient I find that staggering. 42 million people have taken the time to register to say they wish to use the facility yet the “on” button hasn’t yet been pressed.

Way back in 2002, when I lived and worked in Washington, State, I heard about what I’d call a “quirky” little law known as California Health and Safety Code Section 123148, that did exactly as the title of this post reads. It made it illegal for a physician to deliver certain test results to their [...]
