Access to Records
In accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 & Access to Health Records Act, patients may request to see their medical records. Such requests should be made through
the Practice manager & may be subject to an administration charge. No information will be released without the patients’ consent unless we are legally obliged to do so.
Online access to your Medical Care Record
As from 1st April 2016, patients have been able to access additional information in their medical record on line if they wish. In the same way that you can go on line & access basic details such as your repeat medications & allergies, order repeat medication, book an appointment; you will be able to register to access more detailed parts of your medical record.
If you wish to access any online services, please contact reception & they will give you a form to complete, giving the practice authority to set this up. Even if you already book appointments & order repeat medication, you will still need to let reception know that you would also like to be able to view your summary care record. At the moment you must be 16 years or over & will need to complete a consent form giving authorisation for this. This is being reviewed, so if you are under 16 and interested in using online services, please speak to a member of staff.
There is a leaflet available on reception if you would like to read more about this service.
Once you are up & running instead of logging on through our web page, you can log-on directly.
