[Mr. Mike Weir in the Chair] — Electronic Patient Record
Sandra Gidley (Shadow Minister, Health; Romsey, Liberal Democrat)
Excellent! The Committee visited France and looked at the French system, which to a certain extent is web-based. Indeed, it can be accessed from all over the world. Presumably, my hon. Friend would advocate a system such as the French one. I should add that it can be accessed only with the patient's permission.
