Patient Access is a web-based tool which integrates with our medical record software, granting our patients access to some of their medical records, allowing them to book appointments, request prescriptions and view their allergies and immunisation history.
It is a secure service which is a part of the http://patient.info web site, which also offers tools such as a Symptom Checker and houses up to date medical information and news related items, keeping information readily available.
As of 31st March 2016 the implementation of patients Detailed Care Record will allow users greater access to their own records, including consultations and laboratory test results. You will still not be able to see your complete medical history but it will give you a greater scope of your own records. For new patients or patients that sign up to Patient Access after this date this will be automatically granted. For those who are already registered on Patient Access this will not automatically update your access, if you would like to increase your access a form will be made available after this date which will need to be filled in and submitted for us to increase your access. as a practice we will facilitate access to the detailed care record for all patients who ask for it, but there may be circumstances in which we will ask to meet with you to discuss your request.
If you are interested in click here to be taken to the patient access portal. You will need to register first in order for your profile to link with your medical records, this will create a provisional access for you, allowing you to book 1 appointment. In order to consolidate this you will need to attend the Practice and provide photo ID for us to grant complete access.
There is also a free downloadable mobile "app" which is available on the web page provided above, thus allowing you to book appointments, request prescriptions or check your medical history while on the move, away from your computer.
