Accessing Someone Else’s Medical Records or Information

A proxy user is a user that is allowed to view and process medical requests on behalf of another patient.

As a parent, family member or carer, you may be able to access services for someone else. We call this having proxy access. We can set this up for you if you are both registered with us.

You can only be set up as a proxy access user if you have a registered account with online services.

If you wish for another online user to have access to your records and be able to complete tasks on your behalf such as requesting prescriptions, booking appointments and accessing your medical records and information then you will need to set up this person as a ‘proxy user’.

If you have a child under the age of 12 you can request proxy access to your child’s medical records. When your child reaches 12 years old the proxy access will be reduced to only allow you to make appointments on their behalf and request repeat prescriptions. Your child will then need to give consent for any further information to be shared. At the age of 16 proxy access will cease unless your child does not have capacity to manage their own healthcare.* If the patient does not have capacity to confirm proxy access then the access will be forwarded for approval by the GP. For people aged 16 years and older they can request direct online access to their medical records themselves and will have responsibility for protecting their own registration details and password.

Proxy application will not be accepted from third party organisations such as insurance company or solicitors.Forms for requesting proxy access are available from the surgery.

Please return your completed forms with Photo ID to the surgery

Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015, practices are required to allocate all patients (including children) with a named accountable GP.

The named GP is responsible for the coordination and delivery of all appropriate services, where required based on clinical judgement, to each of their patients.

  • Patients do not need to see their named GP when they book an appointment with the practice.
  • Patients are entitled to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice.
