This Is Really Big News And Shows Just How Much Of A Dead End The myHR Is Going Down!
This appeared last week:
24 April 2017
From September the newly revamped NHS Choices will become NHS.uk and the gateway to order repeat prescriptions, book appointments, register for a GP and find a pharmacy.
By the same date NHS.uk is also due to become the route for individuals to be able to access their GP records.
In an interview with Digital Health News, Juliet Bauer, director of digital experience at NHS England, the 30 September deadline, specified in the NHS Digital March board papers, remains achievable.
Bauer said that at least 80 different conditions will be on the new website, alongside more “action based and service based information”.
“It doesn’t sound like rocket science, but they are the things that people want, and these are the things that have traditionally been hard in a system that isn’t all tied together.”
NHS.uk has been through several iterations, in September 2016 Jeremy Hunt, the health secretary, announced plans to overhaul NHS Choices, but the NHS.uk team has been blogging about the project since 2015.
Bauer said the facilities available on NHS.uk have been informed by the needs of the 10.4 million people using Patient Online, the government’s programme to allow patients to access GP records.
“[It’s] very much based on what people are looking for, and we know that because we’ve got 10.4 million people already doing it.”

The first paragraph says it all. Until the myHR offers these services and has a contemporaneous accurate record it will continue to struggle.
The architecture of the myHR is simply not ever going to provide what people want I believe!
