You can't just upload pdfs

The only thing you can do is fill in a Personal Health Summary, which is
a sort of replication of the Shared Health Summary that a GP can upload.
It lets you record allergies/adverse reactions and medication.

Something the government doesn't talk about much is that you can't put
access controls on either of these documents.
