You can now have much more detailed access to your medical record
But before you apply for online access to your record, there are some other things you need to consider.
Although the chances of these things happening are very small, you will be asked that you have read and understood the following before you are given login details
Forgotten history There may be something you have forgotten about in your medical record that you might find upsetting
Choosing to share information with someone It’s up to you whether or not you share your information with others, It’s your choice, but also your responsibility to keep the information safe and secure.
Coercion If you think you may be pressured into revealing details from your patient record to someone else against your will, it is best you do not register for access at this time
Misunderstood information Your medical record is designed to be used by clinical professionals to ensure that you receive the best possible care. Some of the information within your medical record may be highly technical, written by specialists and not easily understood. If you require further clarification, please contact the surgery for a clearer explanation.
Information about someone else If you spot something in the record that is not about you or notice any other errors, please log out of the system immediately and contact the Practice as soon as possible
