Access to your GP Records

Access to your GP Records

There are a number of different types of health record, accessing them is free, and healthcare professionals have a legal requirement to allow you to see them.

Your medical record at the practice is held in two formats, for the last 15-20 years medical records have been predominantly held electronically, but we may also hold historic data for you in paper format. 

GP records include information about your medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results, hospital discharge summaries, appointment letters and referral letters. You can access your GP records, and nominate someone you trust to access them, through GP online services. All of the information we hold in electronic format, including hospital letters and results will be accessible to you. Once access to GP online services is made available, your information will remain up to date and be accessible to you.

For more information about accessing your GP record online, please contact reception or next time you visit the surgery, bring with you a piece of photo ID (passport or driving licence). If you don’t have these, please talk to us and we will help you sign-up.
