Patient access to notes with Charlotte Blease, Brian McMillan and Gail Davidge

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talkResearch


The possibility that patients will suddenly have access to their notes has caused some anxiety for GPs in England. The department of health's plans to allow patients to prospectively access their medical record lead to fears about increased workloads, misunderstandings, and safety - and the plans have now been pushed back.

In this podcast the Deep Breath In team are joined by the authors of a recent article in The BMJ to explore those fears, hear about the potential benefits, and understand the evidence behind open notes.

Our guests;
- Charlotte Blease, and interdisciplinary health researcher at OpenNotes, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/Harvard Medical School.
- Brian McMillan, a GP and senior clinical lecturer at the University of Manchester
- Gail Davidge, research associate at the University of Manchester

The article they're discussing is a practice pointer on Adapting to transparent medical records: international experience with “open notes”
