Access to Health Records

Medical Notes

Our practice offers patients the facility to view areas of their records online. The areas patients will be able to access will include a summary of information relating to their medications, allergies and adverse reactions.

If patients require online access to their records, they will need to register for online services. If they require further access they will need to contact the practice.

Alternatively, you can apply in writing to the practice manager for physical copies. The doctor is entitled to withhold any information, which may be considered detrimental for you to see.

GP2GP Record Transfer

In line with the new GMS GP contract, the practice participates in the electronic transfer of your medical records between registered doctors using the GP2GP system. This enables instant transfer of your medical records from your current GP to your new registered GP, without incurring the delay which results from the transfer of paper notes.

Your paper notes will still transfer with you and will be held either at your new registered practice or by NHS England’s patient services team.
