Online Access to Medical Records

Being able to see your record online might help you to manage your medical conditions. It also means that you can even access it from anywhere in the world should you require medical treatment on holiday. If you decide not to join or wish to withdraw, this is your choice and practice staff will continue to treat you in the same way as before. This decision will not affect the quality of your care.

You cannot use the facility without registering first – please ask at reception for a registration form. For security reasons, you will be asked for official proof of your identity.

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.

Detailed Coded Record

From 31st March 2016 you will be able to request online access to your Detailed Coded Record.

All patients requesting access to the Patient Online Service will be asked if they would like access to their Detailed Coded Record. If so they will need to complete a copy of GP Online access form and present two proofs of ID, one of which must be photo ID. Once you have registered for online services you will have access to appointments, prescriptions and your Summary Care Record. Our GP online team will be notified of your request to have access to your Detailed Coded Data to check your records are up to date. We aim to complete this within 15 working days.
