The NHS is giving people better ways to see their personal health information online. We know that many patients want to be able to access their health records. The new Prospective access will help you to see test results, conditions allergies and medication. It also lets you read and review notes from your consultations, and some letters
From the 11th October 2023 we are allowing most patients to see all the information within their health record automatically. If you are over 16 and have an online account, such as through the NHS App, NHS website, or another online primary care service, you will now be able to see all future notes and health records from your doctor (GP). Some people can already access this feature, this won’t change for you.
This only applies to records from your doctor (GP), not from hospitals or other specialists. You will only be able to see information from when you register at the Practice. For most people, access will be automatic, and you won’t need to do anything.
Please note your doctor/a clinician may want to talk to you to discuss test results before you are able to see some of your information on the app in some cases. Your doctor (GP) may also want to talk to you before your full records access is given to make sure that having access is of benefit to you. There might be some sensitive information on your record, so you should talk to your doctor if you have any concerns.
These changes only apply to people with online accounts. If you do not want an online account, you can still access your health records by requesting this information through reception. The changes only apply to personal information about you. If you are a carer and would like to see information about someone you care for, please speak to reception staff.
The NHS App, website and other online services are all very secure, so no one is able to access your information except you. You’ll need to make sure you protect your login details. Don’t share your password with anyone as they will then have access to your personal information.
If you do not want to see your health record, or if you would like more information about these changes, please speak to your GP or reception staff.
