People's History of the NHS


Patient record files

The size of patient record cards has grown over time - from A5 to A4. More and more information has also been added to the patient record envelopes - including images from new technologies such as x-rays and CT scans. GPs have had to shape their surgeries accordingly, making space for these records. With the transition from paper to electronic record keeping, the space of the GP surgery will change again.
