If you wish to, you can now use the internet to book appointments with a GP, request repeat prescriptions for any medications you take regularly and look at your medical record online. It's your choice.
Being able to see your record online might help you to manage your medical conditions. It also means that you can even access if from anywhere in the world should you require medical treatment on holiday.
Please visit reception and you will be given login details, so you will need to think of a password which is unique to you. This will ensure that only you are able to access your records.
It is 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 that you have not agreed should see it, 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 the password.
If you print out any information from your record, it is also your responsibility to keep this secure. If you are at all worried about keeping printed copies safe, we recommend that you do not make copies at all.
