Three out of four General Practices across the country now give patients access to their new health record information on the National Health Service app or online.

For the remainder, digital leads and commissioners in Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) will regularly meet with practices to address configuration issues and review plans to provide patient access. ICBs will offer performance management support where needed to increase confidence and complete preparations.

Public communications campaigns are in place across the national digital channels (including publishing progress in trade media and across professional networks) to drive GP demand for access.
