ACCESS TO MEDICAL RECORDS

The new NHS App

If you’re a patient at our practice you can now use the new NHS App located at the bottom of our home page, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.

What the NHS App Does:
Use the NHS App to:
· check your symptoms
· find out what to do when you need help urgently
· book and manage appointments at your GP surgery
· order repeat prescriptions
· securely view your GP medical record
· register to be an organ donor
· choose how the NHS uses your data

If you already use the Patient Access option, you can continue to use it if you prefer. You can use the NHS App as well.

What you need to set up an NHS login
You will need:
• an email address
• a UK mobile phone number

What you need to do:
NHS will send you an email containing a link. Select this link to confirm your email address. Then return to the website or app you want to access and enter your NHS login email address and password. Here, you will be asked to give your mobile phone number.

A 6-digit security code will be sent by text message to your mobile phone. You will be asked to enter this code to continue. A security code will be needed to log in every time, unless you select ‘remember this device and stop sending security codes’.

Right now, you cannot set up NHS login without a mobile phone. They are working on this and hope to offer a solution to users who do not own a mobile phone in the future.

If you have any issues using or downloading the app, check the NHS App help and support page NHS Support

 

Service improvements for NHS login

It has been made even easier for the public to access digital services via NHS login, such as the NHS App. If  you have already had an identity check to access GP online services, you can now set up an NHS login without having your ID rechecked.

If you are a patient, you just need to use the mobile phone number saved in your GP record. More information about Fast-track ID checking is available here.

5. Input your Account ID, Email Address and Organisation Code, then click Re-issue Passphrase to retrieve your passphrase.
6. Once you get your passphrase, follow the instruction on the NHS App to setup your NHS login and use the 3 pieces of information you need to link your account to the app.

I AM CURRENTLY NOT REGISTERED FOR ONLINE SERVICES
If you have not previously signed up for online services, you can sign up on the NHS App without contacting the Surgery.
Just follow the instructions on the app.
You will need photo ID such as a passport or driving license. If you don’t have photo ID, you will first need to sign up at the surgery.

 

Online access to your medical records via Patient Access App

We are offering patients online access to their medical record. Patient Access is an App that allows you to make appointments, request medication and also gives you full access from the day you register to your medical records which includes documents, blood results and consultations.

If you would like to take advantage of this service then please read the information below, print off the necessary forms and bring them into the surgery with photo ID.

If you have not already got online access a receptionist will print you a linkage key so you can register online.

You will need to fill out a questionnaire and disclaimer to view your full records and allow 10 working days for it to be activated.
