It is now possible to view your NHS GP notes on line via our portal. Which means you can
- see whether your GP has received any communication about you (e.g. hospital letter or scan result). Please note that if you can't see the letter, we don't have the letter yet. If you feel it is taking too long, contact the sender not the GP.
- check your blood results are back and what the GP thought about them
- check you understood what the plan was at the end of your last consulation
This is a relatively new service. If you had access to the online portal before this facility was added, you will need to contact us to enable it. However, for reasons of data security we are obligued to ask to see photo ID to do so. Unfortunately that means that during COVID (where we must limit footfall in the surgery) we cannot grant access to this service to patients who do not already have it activitated.
We are currently only able to grant access to your notes from the day we activate the service for you. You will not be able to see anything before that date.
We consider confidentiality of paramount importance. When you visit your GP you need to know that what is discussed will remain confidential. There are very few exceptions to this, for example, if you disclose information which might make us feel there is a significant risk of harm to you or to the public. In those situations we will discuss our concerns with you.
Keep your log-in details safe. Only share them with someone if you are happy for them to have access to your confidential GP notes.
