RECORDS HELD AT THE PRACTICE
Patients who are registered with the practice for using the online services can request access to their medical records. Your medical records include the following information:
- Appointments – dates, who you saw, notes on reason for visit, history, examination, outcome
- Medical diagnoses, investigations, procedures
- Test results
- Letters between your GP and others such as hospital consultants (if your GP believes that information in the records would cause serious harm to your physical or mental health, they are entitled to refuse access to some or all of your records. Access may also be withheld if the records relate to, and identify, another person.)
- Links to information about your diagnoses/treatments.
You can access your medical records online with either Patient Access or Evergreen Life. Guidance on using the online services, including viewing your medical records, will soon be available here.
RECORDS AVAILABLE TO OTHER HEALTH STAFF
There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had. For more information on this, click on Summary Care Record..
