NHS sets up electronic record taskforce

The NHS has set up a new taskforce to sort out the problems with its national healthcare record database:

The Taskforce will identify and look at the concerns of patients and the clinical profession about the creation of the summary care record. It will resolve issues in ways that are practical and benefits patients and the NHS. In conjunction with NHS Connecting for Health, it will draw up an agreed plan for the implementation of the nationally available summary record. At the end of November it will report to Ministers

Members include the heads of the BMA, RCGP and RCN.
