Online Record Access for patients

Important!, Medical

We have for some years offered online access to records via the NHS App / NHS login. We are rolling this out on an opt-in basis . It is on offer to patients age 16 and over. Read on to find out more. For under 11s, it is possible for parents or guardians to get “proxy access” . Between age 11 and 16 it is more complicated, and an ethical approach is needed. We need to respect the confidentiality of the young person, whilst often they would wish their parents/ guardians to be involved in their care.
