Your Data Matters to the NHS

Your health records contain a type of data called confidential patient information. This data can be used to help with research and planning.

You can choose to stop your confidential patient information being used for research and planning. You can also make a choice for someone else like your children under the age of 13.

Your choice will only apply to the health and care system in England. This does not apply to health or care services accessed in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.

Access your Medical Records Online

You can access your medical records online.

To use the Patient Access service, you will need to register with the Online Patient Access service. Once your registration account is created you will need to come into the surgery with your passport or driving licence so that your account can be activated. Failure to do so will not give you access to these resources.

Please download and complete the Practice Access Activation form here and bring this, along with your ID to the reception desk.

The forms can also be found in the Reception Foyer near the Information board.
