Important Information - Please read before completing this form
If you wish, you can now use the internet to book appointments with a GP, request repeat prescriptions for any medication you take regularly and look at your medical record online.
It will be your responsibility to keep your login details and password safe and secure. If you know or suspect that your record has been accessed by someone else then you should change your password immediately.
If you can't do this, we recommend that you contact the practice so that they can remove online access until you are able to reset your password.
If you print out any information from your record, it is also your reponsibility to keep this secure. If you are at all worried about keeping printed copies, then we recommend that you don't make copies at all.
Before you apply for Online Access, there are other things to consider:
- Forgotten History - there may be something in your record that you ahve forgotten about and may find upsetting
- Abnormal results or bad news - If your GP has given you access to test results or letters, you may see something that you may find upsetting. This could occur before you have spoken to your GP or when the practice is closed and you cannot contact them.
- Choosing to share your information with someone - It's your choice whether or not you share information with others - perhaps family members or carers. It remains your choice but also your responsibility that the information remains safe and secure.
- Coercion - If you think you may be pressured into revealing details from your patient record against your will, then it is recommended that you do not apply for online access at this time.
- Misunderstood Information - Your medical record is designed to be used by clincial professionals to ensure that you receive the best quality care. Some of the information in your record may be highly tecnhnical and not easily understood. If you require further clarification, please contact the practice.. This may require an explanation by a clinician and may not be available immediately.
- Information about someone else - If you spot something in the record that is not about you or any other errors, please log out of the system and inform the practice as soon as possible.
