Early-day motion calls for immediate halt to summary care records uploads

A new Liberal Democrat MP has put down an early-day motion that “calls on the Government to halt all SCR [summary care records] updates, effective immediately, pending its promised comprehensive review of NHS IT systems.

This is the early-day motion of Julian Huppert MP:

“That this House welcomes the coalition Government’s commitment to give patients control of their health records; considers that any decision to continue to allow updating of patients’ details to the Summary Care Record (SCR) System is inconsistent with this commitment; and calls on the Government to halt all SCR updates, effective immediately, pending its promised comprehensive review of NHS IT systems.”

The motion will chime with some GPs who are concerned that the SCRscheme is being accelerated by health officials who wish to use“success” statistics as an argument to keep the scheme even if there isa  major review of NHS IT.

Ministers can, and mostly do, ignoreearly-day motions. But if many signatures are collected, or there are afew very important signatures, an early-day motion can put pressure on  agovernment to take notice.

Thank you to GP Neil Bhatiafor sending me the link to the motion.

The NHS web database will essentially be held in the cloud and will enable GPs and nurses access to medical records quickly and efficiently saving crucial time for patients and staff. However, it is imperative that the government implement the correct security to ensure the protection of the database, otherwise the benefits will be outweighed by the risk of potentially catastrophic security breaches.The government will have to adopt the same security principles which organisations apply in cloud environments. These include strong authentication practices which will identify exactly who is accessing the database and what files they are accessing. A VPN device which will create a secure encrypted channel between the end machine/remote user and the database. This will also identify what location the files are being accessed from, if it is a third party machine it might also be a consideration to provide more limited access than would be applied with a NHS provided laptop. An intrusion prevention system which can proactively scan all traffic entering the NHS network for viruses and malware – this will give protection against cyber security attacks and hackers. And always-on-connectivity to ensure that GPs and nurses are able to access the records stored in the database at all times - even during maintenance.As technology advances it is something which should be embraced, particularly when it can be advantageous to the public at large. However, the government must make the correct security considerations for the database to work effectively because if they fail to do so it has the potential to cause damaging and long-term consequences.

The NHS web database will essentially be held in the cloud and will enable GPs and nurses access to medical records quickly and efficiently saving crucial time for patients and staff. However, it is imperative that the government implement the correct security to ensure the protection of the database, otherwise the benefits will be outweighed by the risk of potentially catastrophic security breaches.The government will have to adopt the same security principles which organisations apply in cloud environments. These include strong authentication practices which will identify exactly who is accessing the database and what files they are accessing. A VPN device which will create a secure encrypted channel between the end machine/remote user and the database.
