How to access your Medical Record
Since April 2015, the online service has been extended to include the viewing of your medical records online. If you wish to access the additional service you will need to collect from the practice a leaflet to read along with a consent form from the practice. You will also need to bring in one photo ID and one proof of address. The information you will provided with gives the following important information for you to consider before you apply for online access:-
There may be something you have forgotten about in your record that you might find upsetting.
Abnormal results or bad news
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.
Choosing to share information with someone
It’s up to you whether or not you share information with other people such as family or carers but it is important that you keep your log on details and password safe and secure. If you suspect that your record has been accessed by someone that you have agreed should not see it then you should change your password immediately. If you print off any information from your record, it is your responsibility to keep this secure, if you are worried about this being kept safe, it is better not to print it off at all.
When your child becomes 16 years old, the password will be revoked automatically by the practice. The patient will be informed
If you think you may be pressured into revealing details from your records to someone else against your will, it is best 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 record may be highly technical, written by specialist and not easily understood. If you require further clarification, please contact the surgery for a clearer explanation.
Information about someone else
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.
