If you wish you can now request to look at entries in your medical records online. Being able to see your coded record online might help you manage your medical conditions. It also means that you can even access it from anywhere in the world should you require medical treatment on holiday.
Before online access to records is given the online records access must be authorised by a GP, or by another designated member of the practice team who must do so by identification verification.
A GP will review the record before access is given and the Practice allows 21 days from request to access for this process. The GP may wish to discuss the content with the patient prior to authorising access.
Records access will NOT be enabled for any individual registered with the practice for less than three months, except by approval of a GP.

Summary Care Records
There is a Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). The Summary Care Record is meant to help emergency doctors and nurses help you when you contact them when the surgery is closed.
As the central NHS computer system develops, (known as the ‘Summary Care Record’ – SCR), other staff who work in the NHS will be able to access it along with information from hospitals, out of hours services, and specialists letters that may be added as well.
Your information will be extracted from practices such as ours and held on central NHS databases.
As with all new systems there are pros and cons to think about. For example if you are being seen by a emergency doctor they will have access to your medical records which may help avoid mistakes or problems.
You should be asked to give your consent each time a member of NHS Staff wishes to access your record, unless you are medically unable to do so.
On the other hand, you may have strong views about sharing your personal information and wish to keep your information at the level of this practice.
Connecting for Health (CFH), the government agency responsible for the Summary Care Record have agreed with doctors’ leaders that new patients registering with this practice should be able to decide whether or not their information is uploaded to the Central NHS Computer System.
For existing patients it is different in that it is assumed that you want your record uploaded to the Central NHS Computer System unless you actively opt out.
