What is Patient Access?
Patient Access is a 24 hour online service which you can access from home, work or on the movie via the free app – wherever you can connect to the internet.
Detailed Coded Record Access

These requests for further access will be considered on a case by case basis by your GP. If access is agreed, this can then take up to 30 days to be added to your Patient Access account. There is an information leaflet available at reception regarding accessing records online.

Can I use Patient Access on someone else’s behalf?
