Viewing your online medical records

From May 2023 Patients using online services will by default see new information once it is entered, or filed, onto their record in our clinical system. Patients will not see their historic, or past, health record information unless they have already been given access to it by the practice. If a patient moves general practice the data previously disclosed will no longer be visible.

To request access to see your historic health information you will have to complete all of the asterisk fields and click ‘submit’ right at the bottom of the form.

By ticking ‘yes’ you are agreeing you have read all of the below terms in regards to viewing your records online: It will be your responsibility to keep your login details and password safe and secure. If you know or suspect that your record has been accessed by someone that you have not agreed should see it, then you should change your password immediately. If you can’t do this for some reason, we recommend that you contact the practice so that they can remove online access until you are able to reset your password. If you print out any information from your record, it is also your responsibility to keep this secure. If you are at all worried about keeping printed copies safe, we recommend that you do not make copies at all. Before you apply for online access to your record, there are some other things to consider. Although the chances of any of these things happening are very small, you will be asked that you have read and understood the following before you are given login details. There may be something you have forgotten about in your record that you might find upsetting. If your GP has given you access to test results or letters, you may see something that you find upsetting to you. This may occur before you have spoken to your doctor or while the surgery is closed and you cannot contact them. It’s up to you whether or not you share your information with others – perhaps family members or carers. It’s your choice, but also your responsibility to keep the information safe and secure. If you think you may be pressured into revealing details from your patient record to someone else against your will, it is best that you do not register for access at this time. Your medical record is designed to be used by clinical professionals to ensure that you receive the best possible care. Some of the information within your medical record may be highly technical, written by specialists and not easily understood. If you require further clarification, please contact the surgery for a clearer explanation. If you spot something in the record that is not about you or notice any other errors, please log out of the system immediately and contact the practice as soon as possible.
