As your GP practice, we have been asked to provide you with access to your full medical record via the NHS app (and NHS website) if you have a suitable NHS login, from 31 October 2023. As a practice we have decided to ask your permission first, as this gives us a chance to check your understanding and be sure access to your data is safe for you. We are aware that not everyone will want access to their full record on the internet at this time, and some patients may have concerns about their personal medical records being made available on their smartphones or online, especially if other people have access to their devices. If you know you will NOT want access or you change your mind about your access at any time please contact the practice and we can provide you with further information.
