In addition to using the internet to book routine appointments with a GP and request repeat prescriptions for any medications you take regularly, patients over the age of 18 years old can now register to look at some parts of their medical records online.
Being able to see parts of your record online might help you to manage your medical conditions. It also means you can access it from anywhere in the world should you require medical treatment on holiday.
The NHS sets out the contractual requirements for the practice, in terms of what patients are able to see. The practice will comply with the current requirements. Please note, at present this does don’t mean you can see your entire medical records.
If you wish to have on line access to your medical records you will need to come into the surgery with proof of ID (one photo ID and one proof of address).
You may have already signed up to other online services, but due to the highly confidential nature of this service, we require all patients to bring in their ID again to be validated.
Please note that no one else can sign up for you, and patients 18 years of age and over must register on their own behalf. At present this service is not available to patients under 18 years of age, in line with guidance from the RCGP (Royal College of General Practitioners).
