Online Access to Medical Records – Safeguarding

Accelerated Online Access - Safeguarding

At some point after April 2022 (date still to be confirmed) Emis and TPP SystmOne will switch on online access to all prospective data for all patients in your clinical system.

We have raised concerns about certain aspects of this with both NHSD and the BMA, and in particular around safeguarding. We are currently awaiting further guidance on this issue.

In the meantime, we would recommend that practices

​​​​​Clinical System Guides

An EMIS guide for redacting a consultation

A TPP guide for redacting a consultation (Please note that due to the configuration of your system you may not have all 3 processes available to you)

Consider using a test patient in your clinical system and similarly a test patient in the NHS App to see how actions within your clinical system will look to the patient within the App. NHS Digital have full details of how to do this. The NHS App test patient can be set up on a computer or laptop, as well as a smartphone, android or tablet.

With our kind thanks to Dr Michelle Sharma from BSW who has produced   a crib sheet or all healthcare professionals that shows how to “Redact from online view”.
