Patients should create an NHS Login online which will allow them to access their chosen online access provider.
Patients will be able to view their Prospective medical record once the app is created – meaning that you will be able to see what’s in your medical record after the date of activation. You will not be able to see your historic medical records
(Please note that in certain circumstances patient access to their medical record may be withheld or restricted where potentially sensitive, or harmful, information may be held within the record. If you cannot see your medical records created after activation then please contact the practice.)

For children Under 13, proxy access may be given to a parent. Access will be granted up to the childs’ 13th birthday.

All patients aged 16 and over should have their own online access excepting where medical reasons may restrict this. Please contact the practice if under these circumstances if you still wish to have proxy access to another patient for further advice on options.
