Medical records hold information about you. They are also sometimes called health records. You’ll have separate records for any NHS service you go to including your GP surgery, hospital, dentist or opticians. How to get your record depends on the record.
The NHS wants to give people better ways to see their personal health information online. We know that people want to be able to access their health records. It can help you see test results faster. It also lets you read and review notes from your appointments in your own time.
We’re now letting you see all the information within your health record. Please see the questionnaire at the bottom of this page for how to request access. 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 may now be able to see all future notes and health records from your doctor (GP). You will not be able to see historical records via online access. If you wish to obtain historical entries you will need to make a Subject Access Request.
This means that you will be able to see notes from your appointments, as well as test results and any letters that are saved on your records. This only applies to records from your doctor (GP), not from hospitals or other specialists.
Your doctor (GP) may talk to you to discuss test results before you are able to see some of your information on the app. Your doctor (GP) may also 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 also only apply to personal information about you. If you are a carer and would like to see information about someone you care for, 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. The safety of patients is important to us, therefore we are asking patients to complete a questionnaire to request access to that we are able to assess the risks on an individual basis.
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.
Your GP record includes information like any conditions or allergies you have and any medicine you’re taking. You can access your GP record and nominate someone you trust to access it too. There are 3 main ways to get your GP record.
You can get your GP record by logging into your account using the NHS app or NHS website. First, you need to register for online services and prove who you are. You can do this when you create an account. You’ll need to ask your GP surgery for online access to your full record, or you’ll only see your medicines and allergies.
You might be able to use other GP online services and apps to get your GP record. First, you need to register for online services and prove who you are. You’ll need to ask your GP surgery for online access to your full record, or you’ll only see your medicines and allergies. Some services and apps are only available in certain areas. Ask your GP surgery which one you can use.
Contact the online service or app you’re using, or your GP surgery, if you have any difficulties.
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. Check the website for the NHS service you want your records for. You might need to fill out a form to ask for access.
There’s more information about health records in your NHS account.
If you think your medical record is incorrect, you need to let someone at the NHS service for your record know, for example your GP surgery. They will help you get it updated.
Medical records are confidential, so you can only access someone else’s record if you’re authorised to do so. If you wish to grant a person access to your records and/or collect results, discuss medication and to act on your behalf, please download and return a signed consent form to any of our GP branches. It is important that you understand the risks of granting access to others and that you are able to keep yourself and your information safe.

Prior to access being granted, we ask patients to complete the questionnaire below.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS FOR PATIENTS WHO ALREADY HAVE ONLINE RECORD ACCESS. Please complete all questions. We will then process your request and send a reply back to confirm you have access to your electronic health records. It takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. Every person needs to complete this. It cannot be completed for multiple people on the same form. If you are doing this on behalf of somebody else then please remember to state your relationship with the person and that you have permission to do so on their behalf. If you are a partner/carer applying for full access to a record of a child under the age of 16, please be aware that the changes to access only apply to patients over the age of 16. You will still be able to view results, request prescriptions and appointments via your child's online record.
