Accessing Your Medical Records Online

You can now access your historical medical records online via an NHS-approved app.  To gain access you will need to fill out our Online Access Form here.  Parents and carers can access their child's medical records (up to the age of 11) and patients may share their records with family members, carers or trusted friends.  In order to apply for access you will need to download and complete a Proxy Access form here.

Note that if you wish basic access ie obtain Covid Vaccination status or order repeat prescriptions etc, just one form of ID is required.

For full access to your Medical Records, please provide two forms of ID.

You can access your Medical Records via the NHS app.

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). The Summary Care Record is meant to help emergency doctors and nurses help you when you contact them when the surgery is closed.

Your information will be extracted from practices such as ours and held on central NHS databases.   

As with all new systems there are pros and cons to think about. When you speak to an emergency doctor you might overlook something that is important and if they have access to your medical record it might avoid mistakes or problems, although even then, you should be asked to give your consent each time a member of NHS Staff wishes to access your record, unless you are medically unable to do so.

On the other hand, you may have strong views about sharing your personal information and wish to keep your information at the level of this practice. Connecting for Health (CfH), the government agency responsible for the Summary Care Record have agreed with doctors’ leaders that new patients registering with this practice should be able to decide whether or not their information is uploaded to the Central NHS Computer System.

Please refer to the NHS website for further information.  

Download a Summary Care Record Preference Form and complete, returning to the Surgery at your earliest convenience. Alternatively, you can complete the form via the NHS website following instructions here.

For existing patients it is different in that it is assumed that you want your record uploaded to the Central NHS Computer System unless you actively opt out.
