In this paper different security issues will be explored which are associated with making the encrypted clinical messaging system secure. If a system is secure then this suggests that only authorized users can access it and the information that is being passed and stored within it. This new integrated system can link a plethora of patients to many GP practices from different clinics, in Central London and can store very confidential information. The security of these patient records must be guaranteed. With this new system patients are able to receive their health records from the Internet. These systems also guarantee that sensitive information is staying private and cannot be intercepted from any other users except the individual patient.
