Access to your medical record

You have the right under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to know what information is kept about you and how it is used. You can ask to see that information, including your medical record (both computerised and paper records).

The practice now offers on-line access through the Patient Access website. You can use this service to make appointments, order repeat prescriptions, and view your basic medical record.

If you would like to use this service, please ask at reception for an application form. You will need to complete this and provide some identification (including photographic indentification). When your application has been processed you will be given the details required to register with Patient Access.
