Online Access to Medical Records
View Your Medical Records
In line with government guidelines The Helsby and Elton Practice have enabled patients to view their medical records as part of the Patient Access services. This is currently only available to patients who are over 18.
Being able to see your medical record online might help you to manage your medical conditions. It also means that you can access it from anywhere in the world should you require medical treatment on holiday.
What are you able to view:
1) Your medication history
2) Your allergies
3) Your coded medical records. This does not include any text that the clinician will have documented during a consultation.
In the future it is planned for patients to obtain access to hospital and other documents and also lab test results e.g. blood tests.
If you already have a Patient Access account you are able to view your medication and allergies. If you want access to your coded medical records then please contact reception who will then process the application. Please note that the request may be declined for clinical reasons and you will be notified of the reasons why that decision has been made.
