Accessing Health Records

All patients have the right to access information in their health record. This includes letters, test results and appointment notes.

You also have the right to nominate another person who you would like to be able to access your record.

You can access your health record online using:

You will be able to view everything in your record from the date you registered for online access or 1st November 2022, whichever is later. To view your record before that date you will need to submit a request.

Request access to your full health record online

To request access:

  • fill out a register for online services form and choose to access your full health record
  • upload or visit the surgery with photo ID so we can confirm your identity
  • if you are setting up access for the first time, we will give you a username and password

Access to other medical records

For any other medical records, you need to ask for them at the NHS service you went to. This includes records like your hospital record.

Proxy access

As a parent, family member or carer, you may be able to access services for someone else. We call this having proxy access. We can set this up for you if you are both registered with us.

Once proxy access is set up, you can access the other person’s profile in your NHS account, using the NHS App or website.

The NHS website has information about using linked profiles to access services for someone else.
