Our online services allow patients to book appointments and order repeat prescriptions over the internet in a secure way. You can also access your GP-held records.
Accessing your GP-held records via the NHS app or NHS website
As your GP practice, we have been asked to provide you with, no later than 31 October 2023, access to your full medical record going forward via the NHS app (and NHS website) if you have a suitable NHS login.
Your GP medical record contains consultation notes based on conversations between you, your GP, and their team: medicines prescribed to you; all test results including hospital investigations; allergies; vaccines; and your medical conditions along with documents that may have been sent from local hospitals, clinics, or other agencies, e.g., the police. There is likely to be sensitive and personal information within your medical record.
We are supportive of providing you with access to your record, but we wish to do this safely and make you aware that this is happening so that you can opt out, if you so wish. Government has been clear that if a patient does not wish to have access, then we do not have to provide it. This is one reason why we have asked if you wish to opt out, or have it switched off for the time being.
For those who would like access, the different levels available are:
In order to do this, you will need to complete an Application Form (please see below) which is available to download and return the completed form to Reception ALONG WITH photographic ID and recent proof of address – needed for data protection purposes.
A username and password will be issued by the Practice – please allow at least one working day before you collect this from Reception.
Everyone who needs appointments to be booked online will need to have completed a form, as the system will recognise the log in and only book appointments for that person. ID is not needed for children under 16 years.
