Access to medical records

The practice is registered and complies with the Data Protection Act 1998. Any request for access to notes by a patient, patient’s representative or outside body will be dealt with in accordance with the Act. Please contact the Practice Manager for further information.

From April 2016 patients can access their medical records online. At present such access is limited to CODED data only. This includes allergies, medications, immunisations, blood tests and any part of the consultation or medical history which has been clinically coded. At the moment access does not include any free text in consultations nor any attached documents. If you want to take advantage of this facility please ask at reception. Patients ALREADY using online services to order prescription and/or make appointments can apply to have their access extended to cover medical records. Once again, please ask at reception.
