Accessing 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 when away from home.
If you decide not have online access to your medical record this is
your choice. Your decision will not affect the quality of your care.
It will be your responsibility to keep your login details and password
safe and secure.
If you know or suspect that your medical record has been accessed by
someone that you have not agreed should see it, then you should change
your password immediately. If you cannot do this for some reason, we
recommend that you contact the practice and request that online access
be removed.
Any information you print from your medical record is your
responsibility to keep secure. If you are worried about keeping
printed copies safe, it is recommended that you do not make copies at
all.
Other Points to Consider
1.
Choosing to share your information with someone – family members
and/or carers. It is your choice, but also your responsibility to
keep the information safe and secure.
2.
Coercion – If you think you may be pressured into revealing
details from your medical record to someone else against your
will, it is best that you do not register for online access
3.
Understanding Information – Your medical record is designed to be
used by clinical professionals to ensure that you receive the best
possible care. If you require clarification please contact the
surgery to speak to a Doctor or a Practice Nurse.
For more information about keeping your healthcare records safe and
secure, you will find a helpful leaflet produced by the NHS in
conjunction with British Computer Society at:
