Access to detailed Medical Records

Access to detailed Medical Records

It is a contractual requirement for GP practices to enable patients to have online access to a more detailed version of their medical record (rather than the ‘Patient Summary’ version currently available online) by the 31st March 2016. Lensfield Medical Practice are pleased to advise you that this function is now available.

In order to activate this functionality please come in to the practice to complete the relevant form and provide the required ID.

Safeguards have been negotiated in implementing expanded records access. The practice will not be allowing access to detailed coded records to any patient under 16 years of age. There are circumstances where a GP may believe it is not in the best interests of the patient to share all information in the record, for example where it could cause harm to their physical or mental health. GP medical records software will be configured to offer coded data, but GPs will be provided with the tools to withhold coded information where they judge it to be in the patient's interests or where there is reference to a third party.
