UK’s Summary Care Record: miracle turnaround

“Initially attacked by security expert Dr Ross Anderson, at the time a member of Cambridge University’s Security Group, then shredded by Professor Trisha Greenhalgh, and targeted for abandonment by government ministers – “with the government, academia and the BMA against it, the SCR was clearly doomed” – it is now regarded as being important for healthcare, and is being described by 70 per cent. of after-hours GPs as enhancing patient safety.
Columnist Dick Vinegar describes the fact that 9 million records have already been uploaded and England’s Department of Health is encouraging NHS organisations to accelerate creation of SCRs as “a miracle”.”
